The dynamics within the boardroom have become more explicit over the last few years. Boardroom dynamics, therefore, is a theme that stands on its own within leadership development. Besides the formal side, of governance and good monitoring, which is increasingly discussed and documented, there also is a great part that is not directly visible. These dynamics within the board require Board members (executive and non-executive) to have great ability to direct the content and process of communication and decision-making. In this, collective leadership is essential.
Boardroom Coaching is specifically developed to foster trust and growth in complex and dynamic environments. Within this type of coaching, Hoek Consultants makes use of the most recent scientific insights on the subject of boardroom dynamics, governance, and broader group dynamics. Through those insights, the coaches at Hoek Consultants can provide tailored support. In addition, all coaches bring their specialisms from the fields of psychology, coaching, group interventions, mediation, and team development.
For every governing body, it is essential to invest in regular self-reflection. In addition to a more formal and regular self-evaluation, there may be concrete or acute reasons to give specific attention to the functioning of a (Supervisory) Board. A major takeover or merger, a change in team composition, a renewal of regulations, or a major strategic change (affecting the mission of the organisation) are excellent opportunities to take collective leadership to the next stage with an external coach.
