Improving Board Performance Now Easier Than Ever
Presenting the Board EXCELerator: New online governance course inspires boards to achieve ethical, successful leadership
BOSTON, August 15, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Boards of directors can now accelerate their ability to govern effectively, thanks to the Board EXCELerator, an innovative new online learning program from Brown Dog Consulting.
“Boards typically have very little time and budget for governance training, and people mistakenly assume directors already understand good governance principles when they join a board,” explains Brown Dog Consulting President Susan Mogensen.
When board members are not all on the same page about the role of the board, multiple problems result. Some of the most common board dysfunction symptoms include frustrating and time-consuming board meetings, a lack of focus or results, conflict between the board and CEO — problems which can lead to poor performance, ethical issues and insolvency.
Boards also struggle with high turnover and keeping up with the need to orient new board members. Even when high-quality governance workshops are held, board members are sometimes not able to attend or not able to retain and use all the information presented in one training session.
“Governance is a unique skill that needs to be learned,” Susan says, “and now the Board EXCELerator lets boards accelerate their pursuit of governance excellence in an effective, affordable and engaging way.”
The Board EXCELerator is comprised of eight modules and features illustrated panels, audio and video clips, quizzes, discussion guides and individualized coaching for each participant.
