If the future of a business is driven by vision, then effective governance and executive leadership is, by necessity, the most critical factor to its success. Unfortunately, symptoms of issues in an organization’s governance and leadership, manifest themselves further on down the organization: strategic planning is reactive and uninspired, financial management is protective of the status quo, operations are scattered and prone to frequent changes in direction, and employee engagement is typically dismal. Leadership looks for new management to fix the visible issues but the underlying problems persist.
Governance and executive leadership can be fraught with complex issues that often stem from a lack of role and accountability clarity, and ineffective communication. Add to that, the heightened expectation that boards and executives be held increasingly more accountable to stakeholders for improved performance and you have a recipe for board ineffectiveness.
