C-Suite & Boards

C-Suite and Board members each hold unique roles. Their positions give them enormous influence over the success of the enterprise, and they face challenges that are different from those holding other positions of leadership in the organization. They are the primary link with several groups of external stakeholders - shareholders, the press, government, and others. And, especially if they hold the title 'director or executive member', they carry collective legal responsibilities for the organization's performance ad how it goes about its business.

C-Suite

The executive committee - the team at the top - is the only team in the organization to have the dual responsibility of leading a function (or several functions) and leading the organization. Not surprisingly, this is a common source of team dysfunction.

Boards

Boards have built-in restrictions in how team-like they can or should be, therefore, Board-level assignments are a hybrid of team coaching and consulting and tend to start with a request for an external perspective on the Board's dynamics and effectiveness.
