We are very proud of our ELGP 2021 graduates who have developed the exceptional project that explores the Behavioral Problems on Board. 

When you bring together a group of individuals who have different personalities, carry a variety of skill sets, and who come from different backgrounds, there are inevitably going to be challenges in how that group functions. On a board, these challenges can manifest certain behavioral problems, that can come about through individuals or within board dynamics and can impact the overall board culture. This resource is primarily focused on behavioral problems seen in the boards of not-for-profit organisations (NFPs), however it may be applicable to for-profit boards. The production of this resource forms part of the authors’ participation in the 2021 Emerging Leaders in Governance Program.  

Over three chapters: behavioral problems at the individual and board levels and their impact on board dynamics are identified; the causes of behavioral problems on boards are explained; and solutions that address behavioral problems are proposed.

Research from PWC and Pride in Diversity found that LGBTIQ+ women are 12% less likely to be out at work than LGBTIQ+ men, and one in five leave […]
