We’ve got some exciting news. Our platform is getting better as we leverage the high-quality data that we’ve collected over the past decade. Expect much more over the coming months.
My co-founder Malin Lombardi and I were sifting through data the other day—the anonymized board and CEO evaluation data that BoardClic regularly collects from our clients. We stumbled across something surprising.
Non-executive board members are far more critical of CEO performance than chairpersons and senior management. What was the reason for this deviation? We decided to find out.
The CEO is the link between the top functions in an organisation – from the board of directors down through to the management team. His or her decisions resonate throughout the entire business. Hence, the importance of ensuring a strong and effective leadership from your chief executive cannot be stressed enough.
With today’s technology, digitalising the board evaluation process is essential for sustainable development in your company.
I cannot stress the importance of creating enough trust and transparency in your board to avoid getting caught up in this downward spiral. If you truly trust each other, honest feedback will become the norm. And you need honesty to improve as a professional and as chairman. It’s difficult, but it’s crucial.”
The CEO is the centerpiece that connects the lower, mid and top tier of a business. It falls onto them to execute strategies and operations from a down-up and top-down perspective, comprising everything from boardwork to sales. Hence, chief executive officers are currently in the midst of having to deal with this “indirect stress” coming from the board, management and employees – as well as their own.
A process to evaluate your board, your CEO or your management team is crucial for sustainable development in your company. Everyone in an organisation, from the chairman to half-time employees, require feedback on their performance in order to develop – both on an individual and a collective level. Without a steady cognitive operation that develops your people, how can they in turn develop the business?
Promoting responsible corporate governance and sustainable growth is a major cornerstone of the BoardClic vision. Sustainable leadership that nurtures trust, transparency and innovation is proven to have positive impact on work system performance and corporate health, as well as financial and social results overall. BoardClic is proud to contribute to several of the UN goals for sustainable development.
Ever since the majority of people in the corporate environment have been instructed to work from the comfort of their homes, a new phenomenon has started occurring; something I like to call “remote governance”. In other words, boards and CEOs are being forced to conduct their business through digital solutions, video calls and messaging platforms. Unsurprisingly, this is being done without any particular bumps in the road.
There are many reasons to conduct an evaluation of your board, CEO or management team. Predominantly, you want to become confident that the members of said board or management team are on the same path and all share the same interests going forward.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) has released the “Davos Manifesto 2020” with the intent to challenge the common notion that the corporation’s only purpose is to serve shareholders and maximize profits.
What is corporate health? In actuality, it appears to be difficult to find a generic description. When you research the space, your findings give you the impression that corporate health is strictly related to classic, “softer” values such as the health of the employees.
“Year is 2019, new horizons have opened up in conjunction with this digital era. For a board room to stay ahead of the competition, it first needs to be able to keep up.”
You’re the chair of a board. You have surrounded yourself with the most competent of board members. Your CEO is seasoned and passionate. However, before you can optimise these skillsets and achieve synergy, you realise you have to establish a so-called alignment of interest between everyone in the organisation – including the shareholders. This alignment is at the forefront of the company, from the shareholders to the board members, in order for everyone to efficiently strive and work towards a common goal.
Year is 2019, new horizons have opened up in conjunction with this digital era. For a board room to stay ahead of the competition, it first needs to be able to keep up.
Here we talk to BoardClic co-founder Malin Lombardi about her professional career and her insights into Corporate Governance.
There exists a dent in the conventional board
It is a known fact that a CEO and Board of Directors have a very delicate relationship, which by default comes with natural tension. The CEO is trusted with crafting and implementing the organisational strategy, but it’s the Board and Chair’s responsibility to find the right individual who fits that role.
