Boardroom Dynamics

Boardroom Dynamics

Working together for deeper insights, informed strategies and better decisions.

Jeffer London facilitates the path from aspiration to innovative results.

 

Familiar Challenges?

 Hidden agendas, standard rituals, stagnant conversations, politics and personalities, same old results.

It is human nature to fall into patterns of behaviors. These patterns give us comfort… and make change difficult. While we may know we need a fresh approach, old habits, past successes, and group pressure can inhibit us from taking the necessary steps to revitalize boardroom dynamics.

 

What Else Could Be Possible?

 Healthy boardroom dynamics enable an organization to stay on the good path.

To make this happen, top teams need open dialogue, free flowing ideas, insights into issues, motivational vision, and coherent strategies. Having these in place, executive teams can be the catalyst of solutions and takers of decisions that turn their ideas into reality.

 

Creating Healthy Boardroom Dynamics

 Appointing a facilitator from outside your group can accelerate progress. The facilitator, who is neutral in opinion, plays the role of catalyst, observer and coach. It is their role to ensure that all issues get on the table, that perspectives are expressed and understood, and that discussion leads to insights and decisions.

Dialogue is the channel to let this happen, but real discussion requires trust, time and desire. Bringing in an external facilitator can be the fastest way to establish new group patterns, and the conditions that allow for dialogue.

 

Improving Through Action

Rather than analyzing the potential roots of all issues, Jeffer London’s approach is to take the path of action. The first step is to pick a subject that needs attention, and use it as an example of the power of facilitated dialogue. By practicing healthy boardroom dynamics, we get insights into the topics on the table as well as the group’s behavior and performance.

 

A Flexible Method

More creativity? Faster decisions? Better dialogue? Less politics?

Each group has its unique needs and concerns, blind spots and aspirations.

There is not just one direction to do this; each specific context calls for a particular approach. Preparation, spontaneity and flexibility are the only guaranties. Each program has its special qualities, but programs usually unfold as follows:

1. Conversations: Starts with one person, and hopefully continues with each member of the team;
2. Assessment: Pinpoint key issues, objectives, and aspirations;
3. Initial Intervention: Test out the use of external facilitation on a specific topic;
4. Evaluation: Solicit feedback on the intervention and discuss ways to move ahead, if at all;
5. Wider Involvement: Support on the design of meetings, roles, activities, workshops and projects;
6. Partnership: Working together for the reinvention, revitalization and refinement of boardroom dynamics.

Continual summations of the results as well as feedback on the process are part and parcel to the evolution towards healthy boardroom dynamics.
