Expert Advisory Help for Struggling Boards and Leadership Teams

Great companies deserve great leaders and great boards. When your Board of Directors or your leadership team is struggling, it affects the entire organisation. You might think that what goes on behind closed doors is secret, but it’s not. When your leadership team is dysfunctional, it causes ripples that impact everyone.

– Poor decisions are made or, even worse, no decision is made at all.
– The Board and CEO may not trust each other, which leads to micromanagement by the board.
– Gossip and rumour spreads.
– Staff turnover increases as morale drops.
– Sales start to drop and there is a rise in customer complaints.

The worst thing about the situation is that you are part of the problem. You’re in there, living the dysfunctionality every day, and you’re so close to the drama that you can’t see a way out. And even if you could, who would listen to you? The members stopped listening to each other ages ago.
