The challenges in governance roles

There are many challenges for committees and boards. There’s a diverse range of personalities and expectations to manage; as well as making sure you’re compliant. 

If you’ve ever been on a committee or board, then you probably already know they don’t always function as smoothly as you would expect.

And you end up thinking, “I’m not sure if this committee or board is functioning as well as it could. 

Governance should
be straightforward

Committee and board members should know what’s involved in their roles, and be able to all get on together to make good decisions that benefit everyone in the organisation.

There should be somewhere to get the tips and tricks from people with years of experience who can fast track them through the journey. The information should be easy to understand and relevant to the sector.

I want to know enough about the organisation and be informed about compliance, financials and achievements in order to be confident in my role. I think I could benefit from training or guidance.”

We just want to get
things done

We’re all here because we’re passionate about our organisation. We should use our energy to get things done, instead of worrying about lack of process and compliance, or personality issues.

When committees and boards work well, we get things done and we change our community for the better. When people know what their role is and how to perform, they can get on with the job.

We've been there too

We’ve sat on boards and committees who haven’t had best practice processes in place, let alone followed any. It ends up frustrating everyone, leaving them confused and wondering why people don’t know what they need to do. There’s an endless conversation about the same things and a general lack of direction.  

We’ve helped get organisations start on the right path, get back on track after some major disruptions and issues and adapt their path to be responsive to community needs.

Typical comments from clients and workshop participants

"Thanks so much for your excellent training session yesterday with the ACCAN Board. Their first meeting together today went very well and I am sure it assisted greatly by your training on governance the day before. The time spent and your skillful facilitation ensured the Board had the conversations they needed to have in a comfortable and supported manner."

" Attended my first board meeting since the workshop and it made a huge difference to me in confidence and influencing the board to take on some more rigor and processes. It won’t all happen overnight but incrementally I know I can make a difference."
