CEO and Board Report Card

Instructors: Judith Dykes-Hofmann (Board Member of New Braunfels Utility), R. John Miner (President and Owner of Collaboration Unlimited and Collaborative Learning, Inc., Co-Founder of the Academy for Utility Line Design Professionals) and Troy Adams (GM of Manitowoc Public Utilities). 

Governing a public power utility requires the CEO and board members to work as a team and hold each other accountable. An effective board not only sets goals but also regularly evaluates the CEO and itself to ensure that the goals are being met. Dive into the ins and outs of metrics, performance plans, and more. Discuss what structures and processes can make the evaluations objective and effective. Learn how the evaluations can be comprehensive and extend beyond financial performance to mission and community impact.

If your company is in need of establishing board policy or CEO review process or of revising current policies, don't hesitate to contact us.

"Learning is finding out what we already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers and teachers."
