BOARD COACHING

Are you curious why some board meetings are effective and other times not, or why the behaviours of some board directors influences their decision-making abilities?

Board appraisals are both important and a good governance practice to determine the effectiveness of the Board. However, Board coaching builds on the appraisal to support the Board and its directors by getting underneath “the skin” to understand the dynamics, relationships and future development needs of the Board. Curious?

The outcome of Board Coaching is an experiential action and reflective learning engagement which transforms boardroom dynamics, with measurable impact on profits, people and the planet.

BOARD DIRECTOR COACHING

Your functional skills, areas of expertise and technical skills as a board director are critical, but we cannot ignore that you also bring yourself – your character, life experience, perspectives and biases – into the boardroom. Consequently, navigating the conversations in the boardroom, and making decisions that are in the best interests of the company, requires a high level of self-awareness.

Boardvisory Board Director Coaching helps you develop a conscious awareness of integrating your competencies with your character and leadership style in decision-making and helping ensure you are ready for the future.

The outcome of Board Director Coaching is an experiential action and reflective learning engagement, that transforms your ability to navigate the complexities of the boardroom.

WOMAN IN THE BOARDROOM

Women make up 51% of the South African population*, but only 20,7% of directors of JSE-listed companies are female**.

The IODSA June 2020 research report titled: “IODSA NED nomination process research report – insights into the recruitment, selection and appointment process of non-executive directors” noted “ with a high propensity of companies using their internal networks to source NEDS and the prevalence of the ‘old boys’ network (as specifically mentioned by respondents), a barrier to entry is created for new NEDS, regardless of their skills and potential to add value to governance structures.”

There are many barriers to entry in the boardroom for women. Boardvisory offers support through mentoring and coaching of women for the boardroom.
