"Conversational intelligence is key
to board effectiveness"
Margaret Williamson, Director,
"I've been working with boards from more than 30 years now; as an investment analyst , as a non executive director and as a consultant, coach and facilitator. Great boards are always looking to improve and the greatest scope for improvement lies in the areas of board dynamics and boardroom conversations. Group dynamics can be challenging for boards who meet regularly and infrequently, often in a very carefully controlled environment. Boards are not natural teams. They have to work harder to build relationships and trust, develop communicative competency and achieve synergy and results.
Boardroom conversations can give real insights into the health of the board and the health of the organisation. Recent corporate failures have highlighted the fact that even highly experienced board members have blind spots, can be drawn into group think and miss or ignore significant risks. Improving the quality of conversations can have a significant, measurable impact on board and organisation performance.
I work with boards to identify the stuck patterns of behaviour and conversation that are transparent to them and help them build stronger more effective boards."
