How to Get Your Board of Directors on the Same Page

Directors at board meetings share their different perspectives and discuss diverse ideas to reach a consensus. These might be issues pertaining to the company’s policy, management appointments or even addressing emergencies. But achieving consensus isn’t as easy as it looks. It’s nearly impossible to make significant decisions without the support of your board and getting everyone on the same page is a challenging task.

The first step is establishing the structure that will make sure that each meeting has the best results. This means that you must distribute meeting materials a minimum of one week prior to the meeting so that attendees have time to read and comprehend them. Many boards also hold an internal meeting that is brief prior to the actual board meeting to discuss the agenda items.

The next step is to make sure that the objectives of the meeting are clearly defined. This helps to maintain focus and encourage discussion, while ensuring the board’s decision making processes are transparent.

Encourage participation by asking for feedback at the conclusion of each meeting. This will help identify and address any issues with the way that your board operates and keep them on track towards achieving their goals. This can be done via surveys, anonymous polls or facilitated discussion.
