What is conscious governance?

Today's nonprofit environment is different from ten years ago, where now the challenges and issues organizations face are changing at an incredibly rapid speed.

However, many governance practices that still prevail in most organizations today have their roots in the 19th century. Some people still see governing as “making policies” that the CEO and staff carry out. It has a tendency towards prescription and conformance with governance systems. This conventional governance was built to maximize efficiency by minimizing deviations from standard practices. Conscious Governance, in its widest sense, refers to running an organization with conscious awareness.

No amount of internal procedure, structure, policies, quality control or internal audits will compensate for Board members who do not consciously govern!


Why conscious governance matters

Choosing to govern consciously can create a strong future for an organization by steering it towards a well-defined vision and making sure that day-to-day management is always lined up with the organization's strategies. At its core, conscious governance is about conscious leadership.

Conscious Board leadership will improve the organization's results, both financial and social, and make sure the assets and funds are used appropriately.
