Creating a Culture of Openness and Transparency at Board Meetings

Board meetings are ideal for generating enthusiasm and encourage members from different backgrounds to share innovative ideas. However, keeping up the momentum takes more than simply getting everyone in the same room together.

Board members must feel that they are able to trust each other enough to be honest and open to asking difficult questions. This is only possible if there is an atmosphere of openness and transparency. It is crucial to establish an environment that is conducive to board meetings and are as productive as they can be.

The agenda of the board should clearly define what directors must do to achieve their goals. The agenda should be flexible enough to accommodate any unexpected items or the necessity to change the order of items. The board should also be given the opportunity to discuss any new business-related items.

When it comes to discussing new business ideas, a great board chair will refrain from presenting reports and instead focus on facilitating discussion among the entire group. This will not only save time but it will help create a positive environment in which the board can ask difficult questions to management.

A parking lot could be added to the agenda to allow for small, random discussions, and not distract from important issues. Distractions can eat up valuable time at meetings and stop the board from taking action.
