Teams in every sport need a coach. The coach usually doesn’t play on the team. He or she understands the game and uses that understanding to develop a game plan that will help the team win. However no team wants its coach to put together a plan, walk into the dressing room, throw it down on the table and walk out. A good coach is constantly pressing the players toward excellence, while pointing out ways that the team can improve. That doesn’t mean the coach is smarter or can play the game better. Rather, the coach draws upon his or her experience and understanding of the game and experience so that the players around them can succeed. 

Boards are no different. They are teams. They need someone from the outside to provide a game plan for the team and the perspective that challenges the team to be the very best it can be.   

To ensure that the board has sufficient support to learn the new habits necessary to apply the principles of Policy GovernanceÒ successfully, we encourage at least a year of coaching as part of our full implementation. This includes: 

A dashboard to show at a glance which principles you are following well, areas for improvement, and principles endangered or currently being contravened. 

On request, we will complete an advance review of Monitoring Reports prepared by the CEO, with suggestions for refinement, until the CEO is comfortable with the process.

Great coaches make sure great players develop great habits. Then great players make great teams where winning becomes a culture. If your team is committed to make great governance a culture, The Governance Coach wants to help you reach that goal.  We start where you are, and walk with you on the journey, providing expert coaching and practical resources.

To ensure that the board has sufficient support to learn the new habits necessary to apply the principles of Policy GovernanceÒ successfully, we encourage at least a year of coaching as part of our full implementation. This includes: 

  • Written Coach’s Advisory following each meeting, including, as relevant: 
  • Comment on how well the board followed Policy Governance principles
  • Suggestions for additional policies or amendments as needed
  • Assistance with policy wording for policies under development
  • Comment on content and format of monitoring reports
  • Assistance with improved design of board meeting agendas
  • Suggestions for ownership linkage strategies
  • Suggestions for continuous improvement in application of the model
