We thought we were already living in a time of profound change. And then . . . the Pandemic. Think it will be over soon? Better think again!
Boards are discovering that they need to govern differently if they are going to meet the challenges their organizations now face. Nothing less will do at a time when boards are challenged with building short- and long-term financial sustainability, delivering on mission in new ways, weighing strategic restructuring options, planning for board leader succession, and more. The unrelenting pace of change challenges boards to look and act differently; and traditional governance models will not suffice. Some boards have already made the transition. They possess a number of qualities and characteristics that together define a new profile of board effectiveness.
Forward-looking boards like yours can take things to the next level by applying the Governance as Leadership model that challenges boards to engage in three modes of thinking and decision-making: fiduciary, strategic and generative.
While all three are important, the third, generative thinking, is now receiving the most attention. Thinking further into the future about new possibilities through generative mode thinking -- governing from the future -- can lay the groundwork for leaders to develop resilient strategies that assure continuing mission impact and sustainable growth in an increasingly uncertain future.
This workshop will provide a practical introduction to tools and techniques that will equip your board to govern from the future.
