Governance Services

Your board and trustees are crucial to your organisation. This governance provides the purpose, culture, accountability and compliance around which everyday activities are built. With the gravity of the task at hand, it’s often wise to seek external support to help the board successfully navigate conflict or to better tackle issues or opportunities.

As an experienced board facilitator and mediator, Rosemarie Brown can be that impartial third party when you need it.

Board Facilitation

While having strong leadership is a critical element of a successful board, there are occasions that require the chair or senior person to remove that hierarchy.

This could be to encourage team building or to facilitate creative problem solving, and necessarily creates a power vacuum. Rosemarie Brown can step in as an external, neutral facilitator. This provides the board with the direction it needs while also allowing the usual ‘head’ to put their entire thinking processes towards the challenge – this is especially important if the head’s expertise is required.

Rosemarie will be there to guide conversations, manage relationships and run meetings. Talk to her about Board Facilitation today.

Board Dispute Resolution

Boards are generally populated by incredibly expert, knowledgeable and respected individuals. It’s understandable then, that any discord amongst members can quickly turn into conflict, as each party stands his or her ground.

While resolving conflict within a board generally falls to the chair or senior trustee, there are some cases in which this is not the best approach. The conflict may involve this leader, or require more expert guidance.

Rosemarie Brown’s expertise in conflict resolution encompasses business considerations as well as managing the expectations, emotions and personalities of the individuals involved. As an impartial third party, Rosemarie takes any discord out of the board room and helps the parties deal with conflict quickly and confidentially, so they can concentrate on their board duties as soon as possible. This minimises risk and disruption to the board and the organisation as a whole.
