Good governance starts with Purpose and Culture

Five Ways to Enhance Board Oversight of Culture (Harvard Law School Forum)

Responsibility for defining the right culture for the company and embedding it within daily operations falls to management, but the board must oversee and hold management to account on how it is defining, aligning (to purpose and strategy), embodying and reporting on culture. Accordingly, we identified accelerating the talent agenda and activating culture as a strategic asset as one of our 2019 board priorities.

At GGI we have explored Culture in our Purpose and Culture course in depth. Culture should be consciously created through the collective values and beliefs your organisation is built on. How can governance professionals contribute to good culture?
