bookToday’s C-suite teams are expected to deliver results and build high performance teams in an increasingly complex and cutthroat business climate—the difference between who keeps up and who gets left behind has never been more immediate. Their boards of directors, called upon to advise, support, and challenge the C-suite, too often fail to execute or even agree on strategy and miss opportunities due to a lack of clarity around roles and responsibilities.   So what’s the problem? Too many organizations try to change the who and what of corporate leadership and governance without looking at the real issue—the how. What’s the answer? Concinnity: a harmonious framework of corporate governance, leadership and cultural competency.   In Corporate Concinnity in the Boardroom, Nancy Falls delivers ten imperatives that will change the way companies look at their most mission-critical relationships. Developing concinnity at the highest levels of leadership will forge an enduring impact on profitability, innovation, growth, and stakeholder satisfaction.   Rehiring, reorganizing and re-strategizing won’t solve the problem. What will solve the problem is developing relationships based on trust, clarity and consistency with all stakeholders. Relationships must be thoughtfully cultivated and intentionally maintained. It is more important than ever for the C-suite and boards of directors to be aligned and proactive. Nancy Falls will show you how to make it happen in your organization.
