At Satori, we understand that the road to good governance is a journey and that no two Boards are ever at the same point in that journey. Being a good Director is not just about showing up. A good director understands his/her obligations, fiduciary responsibility, and his/her ultimate role at the board table. Boards that strive to continually improve their governance work achieve better results.
With this in mind, we customize our programs to your business, ensuring your needs are truly understood. With over 20 years experience, we work internationally with Boards of all sizes from not for profit, to private, to corporate, helping Boards be stronger and more effective. We focus on best practices, board education, individual Director and Board evaluations, and board succession and recruitment. In addition, in support of the Board and CEO relationship, we provide guidance and hands-on support for CEO evaluations.
Think of the Board as sitting in the crow’s nest on the main mast of a ship with a view to the future, while the CEO and staff work in the day to day of steering the ship. We believe that the Board’s role is strategic oversight and risk, and that they should be spending 70% of Board meetings focused on strategy and risk-based discussions, and 30% on operational components.
The best Boards continually challenge themselves to be better and they partner with Satori Consulting to help make that a reality.
