We help our clients peel back the layers of the onion.

Why Clients Hire Us

Organizations are often at different “ages and stages” when they reach out to BoardWorks. The common thread is their interest in achieving greater clarity of purpose (mission), roles (responsibilities) or direction (priorities).

Our Services

We specialize in:

  • Governance – helping clients define their process and structure for decision-making
  • Strategic Planning – helping clients create a roadmap to their desired future
  • Facilitation – helping groups have meaningful and productive conversations
  • Coaching – helping Board Chairs, new CEOs and board members optimize their board performance

We have worked with:

  • Brand new boards and organizations who are looking to start off on the right foot with their governance and strategic planning
  • Organizations experiencing a change in board or executive leadership who want to ensure that “everyone is on the same page” regarding the organization’s governance
  • Family businesses looking to establish advisory boards
  • Businesses seeking to document their governance practices to meet securities exchange requirements
  • Boards that are struggling for one reason or another
  • Well-established, mature boards that are committed to the continuous improvement of their governance
  • Organizations looking to engage key stakeholders in the development of a clear and focused strategic plan
  • Departments within a larger organization that are working on shared “horizontal” initiatives
  • Units within an organization that want to engage their members in role clarification and priority-setting exercises
  • New Board Chairs to help them plan and manage board meetings more effectively
  • New CEOs who have never reported to boards before and who want to establish an effective Board-CEO relationship

We help our clients “peel back the layers of the onion” to get at the core of why they exist, where they want to go long-term, who is responsible for what and what are the short to medium term priorities for the board/organization.
