Every functional board needs some type of annual or even semi-annual retreat to be able to operate most effectively. Board retreats can be used to build morale, establish mission, vision, value, strategy statements, and to plan for the year and develop direction based on emerging trends and global best practices. Of course, underlying these reasons is the opportunity to cement personal commitments from each board member to the mission of your institution.
Each Board is unique and what works best for a Board retreat has to be customized. Today, especially for government organizations, the retreats are frequently shorter and they need to be focused to get the most out of them. AEMPIN Board retreat is a departure from ‘a group’ to ‘an effective team’ that pursues and achieves result. We focused on the four stages of building an effective team – forming, storming, norming and performing – will guarantee bonding together in the interest of the organization, in the interest of the beneficiary community that we serve, and in the overall interest of the country.
- Understand the issues and trends of the organization
- Understand the overarching statements of the organization and why the organization exists
- Understand why innovation is important & how working board groups can drive specific changes
- Create a list of questions to pose to the public to help guide the leadership
- Provide a constructive plan to communicate to organizational team
Run properly, Board retreats are the most effective means of unleashing the power and expertise of trustees in the stable. Bring them along in the planning process, secure their commitments to implement strategies for achieving desired outcomes, and success will come to your organization.
