Board Development

Situation

A non-for-profit Chief Executive approached Carroll Consulting to provide skill development for its Trustees.

How we helped:

We provided a pre-workshop briefing to the Board members to provide context for a survey asking them to identify the importance and their current proficiency in a number of competency areas for effective governance. Using this data it became evident that there was a need to develop the skills of the Board in Engaging and Influencing Stakeholders.

Carroll Consulting provided a workshop which included Board members identifying the key stakeholders of their organisation; the connection to their organisation at both a professional business level but also at a personal level; and crafting a strategy for engaging with these stakeholders.

Outcome:

The Board thoroughly enjoyed the workshop; commented that they not only developed new skills in engaging and influencing key stakeholders but also had a better understanding of their fellow board members.
