Board directors play a crucial role in the development of your company. They are able to provide feedback, provide assistance or make decisions that affect the direction of your business. Therefore, it’s crucial to organize and conduct engaging board meetings. How can you do this?

Start with the Most Important Items

The bulk of your board’s meetings should be focused on discussing the best way to implement your company’s plans. This is a great time to set out specific KPI goals, which can be tracked and measured. Examples include net promoter scores, sales and region. This helps ensure that your board is in agreement with the rest the company and work as a unit towards common goals.

Don’t Get Sidetracked

Distractions from new discussion topics during the board meeting can easily take up meeting time and divert board members from the most important agenda items. Instead, the chair should open with a 10 minute review of the most important suggestions that will be sought at the meeting, while reiterating highlights from the calls prior to the meeting and the board package.

If a new subject is brought up that isn’t a priority, you can shift it to the final item on the agenda, or plan it for a break. This will ensure that it isn’t being brushed aside, and it will also create the impression that the board is actively looking for new ideas and perspectives.
