Governance Training for Organisations

Good governance involves overseeing your organisation’s performance and making important strategy and policy decisions. Best practices include aligning your strategies and goals, building a reliable board, managing risk, and clearly defining roles and responsibilities.

The benefits of learning governance

Your community or organisation can benefit from governance training. There are always issues that need attention and need an expert to come in. Continuous improvement is always a good idea, whether it is a requirement or not.


Governance can be frustrating

Having a poorly governed organisation is frustrating for everyone involved. Decisions are being made that make me feel frustrated and lead to confusion. And there’s pressure to get things fixed sooner than later.

And with turnover in committee positions, so there also a need for ongoing training.

Governance training that best suits our needs

There should be options to train governance that best suit the budget and the community members. The training should be based on the needs of the community members and the resources and budget available. Training should be clear, easy to understand, and delivered in a way that suits all learners. 

We've been there

We’ve sat on boards and committees who haven’t been following best practice governance practices.

We’ve had to deal with frustration, disappointment, and confusion over things that should be easy, but aren’t. We know what it’s like to face uncertain situations feeling unsure and concerned because we know we have important decisions to make.
