Boards of the Future
Dr. Chinyere Almona
Boards may not appear to be noticed while business activities are going well. Yet, when things start to go awry, they are usually the center of attention, and their effectiveness is actively questioned. Are todays' boards equipped to create value for companies in the future? Dr. Almona's proprietary ©Five-Way Directional Model, which can be used in various contexts, guides board members to focus their attention on what matters most. It helps them leverage their board leadership role to achieve success in the short, medium, and long term. The model requires business leaders to look intentionally in the right direction, learn from what they see so that they can lead effectively, and consequently leap exponentially. Looking in the right direction allows the board to have a robust perspective of its stakeholders and the business landscape. Over the past twenty-five years, Dr. Almona has studied board behavior and worked with several boards as an advisor, assessor, trainer, and consultant. In this book, she harnesses her wealth of experience to assist boards in professionalizing their practices to achieve sustainable business success. Boards that look and learn effectively, lead and leap exponentially.
