Build your governance culture

Through a highly confidential process, our Peer Review solution helps you to better understand the individual capabilities of your governing body and inform individual development plans.

The most straightforward & intelligent way to improve your governance culture

It is incumbent upon whole boards as well as individual directors to understand their group and individual governance strengths and opportunities for growth.  Accordingly, they are required to have discussion and set actions and resources for addressing them.

It is very important for high functioning teams and their individual members to have a culture for being able to take and give constructive feedback.

A Peer Review allows directors to give their own assessment of their fellow directors for the key areas of their governance roles and responsibilities. The results being fed back confidentially, in a constructive way, assist the directors to self-reflect and to acknowledge their strengths and opportunities for growth. Of equal importance is for directors to create relevant actions for their own personal and professional development and engage in regular conversations with their chair, fellow directors and others as to their development and growth.

Our Peer Review looks at 4 key areas in order to establish an understanding of the individual’s contribution to the board’s culture:









The results of the Peer Review allow directors to build a development plan tailored for their individual needs. It can also help to inform whole of board development plans.

We strongly recommend that the Peer Review be done in conjunction with the Director Development Program in order to better inform individual and group action plans by combining the results of the Peer Review with the Development and Skills Matrix questionnaire. Registration to the Director Development Program also provides you with access to the Governance Evaluator platform, allowing you to build interactive action plans linked to capability building resources and use reports to measure progress on actions at regular intervals.
