Coaching conversations give access to a confidential ear, a sounding board for your ideas, or an expert opinion. This can include everything from building trust with the board to managing the troublesome board member.


Training workshops are customized to your topic and timing. Popular topics include Building a High Performing Board and The Board-Staff Partnership.


Board consultation can be as broad as a comprehensive governance review or target specific areas such as board structure or meeting practices.
