Director Placement Consider
Can management and shareholders say, without hesitation, how your board delivers value?
Is your board a cohort of individuals whose values and aspirations are aligned?
Have directors mastered ‘soft’ skill literacy to interrogate, articulate, evaluate and execute ‘hard’ skills?
Do they understand the power of ‘Disruptive thinking’ to generate creative solutions from challenges?
Are they engaged in ongoing personal and professional development?
Do they recognize the transformational power of an externally-led review process?
The performance of the board and key executives should be reviewed regularly against both quantitative and qualitative outcomes.
Most leaders are unable to recognize, let alone change, the structural habits of attention used in their organizations.
