If you believe in leading by example, you realize the importance of proper governance for your organization. Governance sets out the framework for the business purpose of the entity and the cultural and ethical environment in which the entity deals with its clients and employees.

The behaviours exhibited by and decisions made by the board members set the standard for those who implement them. The effectiveness and viability of enterprises depends on the performance of the people at the top. For this reason, excellence in board governance can be the only acceptable goal.

Achieving excellence in board governance is not easy. It fact, many board members admit that little in their careers to-date has come even close to preparing them for the difficulties of resolving the issues on a peer-to-peer basis. That is why many boards bring in the experienced outside resources of Western Management Consultants to help them with the assessment process, team building and plans of action.

Each board has its own individual personality, strengths and shortcomings. Working within the framework of the established situation, we open up the possibilities for various governance models, best practices and assessment processes. We help the board define the goals that they want to achieve and the methods by which they wish to work as a group. Roles, responsibilities, recruiting and relations are among the many aspects included in the work. In effect, we help boards create and implement plans for achieving excellence in board processes and decision-making.
