Every board should periodically arrange for an externally facilitated review process to ensure that it is performing as well as possible, and to identify strengths and opportunities for improvement. Ideally that process should include a full board audit or review, at least once every three years.
When you’re not due for a full audit or review, however, but feel some time out for reflection and discussion would help focus board members on how the board can enhance its effectiveness, BoardConnect can provide a Facilitated Board Reflection, for a fraction of the cost of a full audit.
Experienced facilitators from BoardConnect provide an impartial view and will be able to share insights from their work with other boards. They can help table topics for discussion and resolution, which might otherwise remain unaddressed, and assist the process of prioritising actions for the board’s attention over the coming year.
A BoardConnect consultant would start the process with a conversation with your Chair, and would then prepare for a 2 hour meeting with all board members. Ideally this 2 hour session should be scheduled as a stand-alone meeting, but could immediately precede an already scheduled board meeting if member availability requires this. Following the session, BoardConnect would supply notes on key discussion points and agreed board actions, and copies of relevant BoardConnect fact sheets and board resources.
Cost: $750 - $1,200, depending upon the organisation and its circumstances.
