Chair's Challenge: managing difficult board dynamics logo
Managing difficult board dynamics

This briefing looks at the Chair’s role in Managing difficult board dynamics.

The board is a social group and its dynamics affect its ability to function. The challenge for Chairs is to understand these dynamics and to create the conditions for board members to work together productively. 

Before producing the briefing, we reviewed what had been written on the topic. Members can access a short literature review in the members-only area.

Managing difficult board dynamics has been made possible with the generous support of The Chartered Secretaries' Charitable Trust.
