Board Effectiveness

An effective Board can bring considerable strategic and operational strength to a business. The correct make up of skills and experience coupled with appropriate reporting, meetings management and director development can also breathe life into a struggling business or organisation.

Our service begins with a 'fact find' of the current operation of your Board. Following this assessment we work closely with you to develop action plans to address any shortfalls and maximise strengths.

Case Study

The CEO wanted to help the Board to develop its strategic thinking and to implement personal development plans.

“Mindshare NI has been our executive coaching provider for the last three years and in that time has greatly assisted our executive directors to not only identify but correct development issues. The coaching has been provided on an individual basis and has given valuable insight to those individuals. It also helped the team gain perspective when managing relationships, prioritising strategic thinking and to develop confidence.

Gerry is the consummate professional whether he is helping with business or personal issues - he is the person to go to if you want to develop your executive team.”
