Improve your board effectiveness through the EmC process

Board Development

A new approach to board dynamics.

It takes awareness, understanding, practice, and a clear process for change.

The Emotional Connection (EmC) Process is a newly evolving structured approach to board effectiveness and improved relationships. After learning and using the Emotional Connection framework, you start to be more open with each other and trust each other more. This creates safety and space to make better board decisions. With EmC, you learn how to prevent and reverse toxic interactions from taking over and fast-track to positive board environment.

When it comes to your board dynamics, interactions that emphasize emotional connection are an impactful way to integrate positive and healthy practices into your organizational dynamics and culture.

Reverse being stuck in relationship issues and return to high engagement and performance.

Build on your EQ and positive board goals with the EmC process. Manage inevitable negative cycles that drain productivity and rise above the clouds and experience joy in working together.

With EmC, you create more productive board meetings; a clear focus and direction, and communicate with each other and management constructively; and in general, you become more engaged in the governance process.

I have had the opportunity to work with scores of school boards and management teams over the span of 49 years in education. Dr. Gershfeld’s work will dynamically improve the leadership of organizations by bringing teams at the highest level together for success. Her work is a masterpiece for organizations of all types. The blend of great research on emotional connection and its impact on team dynamics, trust, and organizational effectiveness that she has created is groundbreaking. It will change the way boards and teams deal with decisions and conflict and will, without question, accelerate their performance.

It’s interesting – generally, I’m rather reserved and reticent about revealing too much personal information. But I sensed something about your manner that made it safe for me to be open and candid. Having been through some really tough circumstances, I now know how important it is to develop a support network to navigating new territory. And on that note, a fellow conference attendee actually approached me and said she was interested in serving on my board. That blew me away! So that, together with your coaching, gives me courage and enthusiasm to stride into the future and taking leading the company moving forward.
