Running a Successful Board Meeting

A lively agenda is crucial for a successful meeting. It should include a mix of updates and discussions. But how can you ensure that the board is engaging in discussions that are focused on developing strategies to move the business forward instead of simply discussing information that already has been disseminated?

The most important thing is to put the most important discussions at the top of the agenda. This will allow the leaders to stimulate the meeting by engaging in the tough discussions earlier, and it will establish a precedent that the meeting is not just a recitation of reports. This will lessen the tendency to be distracted by new topics or waste time on activities that could be shifted to future meetings.

After the board has discussed the organization's strategy and came to an agreement, the next step will be to formulate an action plan. This will include identifying concrete metrics that are aligned to the objectives, such as the net promoter score, levels of customer satisfaction and retention regional sales, or employee turnover.

During the discussion, it's crucial that the board consider the pros and cons of each option. This will ensure that everyone is clear on what they are agreeing to and ensure that the decisions will have a positive impact on the business. It is also crucial to create a culture of respect, so that board members are comfortable expressing their opinions and challenging prevailing views with respect.
