Director of Education,
National Association of Corporate Director
As the only national network of directors and executives from leading public, private and nonprofit companies, NACD provides what is considered unparalleled educational offerings to help directors demonstrate leadership in corporate governance.
Challenge: When they needed some internal professional development to help their teams perform at even higher levels, they asked e3 Strategies to help develop intellectual leadership among staff with a range of experience and expertise.
Solution: e3 Strategies designed and delivered a workshop designed to challenge teams to think beyond their currently defined processes, especially as they related to decision-making.
The workshop helped NACD's staff develop a pragmatic and open approach to decision-making and showcased how "mismanaged agreement" (as defined by Dr. Jerry Harvey) can influence decision-making within a group, to the detriment of the group or organization's goals. NACD President Ken Daly said,
"We chose e3 Strategies to help our internal staff understand the concept of group-think
and how to avoid getting lost in a fog of faulty decision-making."
