Directors at board meetings share their different perspectives and discuss different ideas in order to come to the consensus. These can include company policies, management appointments as well as responding to emergencies. However, achieving agreement is not as easy as it looks. It’s almost impossible to take major decisions without the full support of your board and getting everyone on the same page can be a daunting task.

The first step is to create the structure that will ensure that every meeting yields the highest quality of results. This means that you must distribute meeting materials at least one week prior to the meeting so that attendees have time to read and comprehend the materials. Many boards also hold an internal meeting of a brief duration prior to the actual board meeting to discuss the agenda items.

The next step is to make sure that the meeting’s objectives are clearly stated. This helps keep the meeting focused and drive discussion, while ensuring the board’s decision making processes are transparent.

Encourage participation by asking for feedback at the end of each meeting. This will allow you to identify and address any issues with the way that your board operates and keep them on track toward the goals they have set. This can be done with surveys, anonymous polls or discussions with facilitators.
