BOARDS

Our Focus

Fiseq lightBlue square logo

Our approach starts by working with boards to transition from a conformance to a performance mindset ready to navigate the future disruption their organisations face - from AI, VR to Cyber.

Board6lens

We deploy a proprietary framework covering 6 lenses to ensure we cover all areas of board effectiveness in a  systemic manner.  

Future

Fully defined and contracted future objectives

Purpose

A clear purpose led culture

Structure

Effective Roles and Committees 

Dynamic

Effective and productive board dialogue

Individual

Skilled and productive board members

Performance

Effective decision making and impact

With the move to greater accountability for shareholder value, and consideration for the next generation, we de-risk the future world of work by measuring and monitoring board performance and then delivering intelligent change to develop greater effectiveness.

BOARD INSIGHT

Boards need to shift focus to Purpose and Performance

“Boards need to move from conformance to performance ....few would disagree but it’s more easily said than done. Unlocking intelligent change flows from company purpose, is measured through performance and regulated by culture. If you believe that companies should do more than generate returns for shareholders but have a duty to the ecosystems in which they operate and the people they employ then I can warmly recommend Fiseq and Joel Segal!”

BOARD FRAMEWORK

The rigour behind our enquiry...

The Board framework we use is based on extensive research and application for board effectiveness. It is rooted in developmental psychology for optimal human fit and covers 6 lenses.

Our enquiry obtains a full picture of each of the individual lens and the interaction between the 6 lenses. 

All our interventions and improvements are then referenced back to this same taxonomy ensuring a consistent framework is used to gain a realistic assessment of current maturity and also potential development objectives. 

HOW WE WORK

Act as a Critical Friend

  • We act as a critical friend working with the collective, committees, key roles and individual board members to ensure the full system is thoroughly aligned through our probing enquiry balanced with a developmental ethos.
  • Our focus, whether it is a full board review or a development assignment on a specific lens (e.g. succession, structure, ethics or dialogue), starting by treating each assignment as unique, working back from what actions and developments the board will need crafted carefully with each Chairman.

WHY FISEQ

Future Fit intelligent change

FUTURE FIT INTELLIGENT CHANGE

We focus on identifying your unique critical areas of change needed for the Board to be aligned between NEDs and more executives to ensure sustainable decision making is the norm in guiding the company to thrive in the future.

RAPID EVALUATION

Recognising Board members are more time pressed than ever, we have developed taxonomies and classification matrices that ensure we can evaluate rapidly.

CRITICAL FRIEND

We act as a critical friend, applying holistic enquiry, to what is both observable and what sits below the surface. We go well beyond a tick box exercise, to work over a maximum of a three year cycle on actionable change.

ACTIONING TONE FROM THE TOP

We believe in not just ensuring there is a clear vision and purpose but how to then align and drive that into the culture, values and ethics needed at the board, in leadership and through the organisation to act and make the right decisions.

UNIQUE MIX OF SKILLS

Combining our deep experience of working in business, serving on boards with depth in leading psychology, technology and scientific thinking ensures we bring a rare combination of skills.

HIDDEN PERFORMANCE FACTORS

Using advanced systemic enquiry we diagnose the often hidden root cause, potential risk and performance factors and frame them as actionable change.

CLIENT FEEDBACK

Board Reviews beyond a tick box excercise!

“Joel Segal (Fiseq) undertook an external board effectiveness review for ScS and the experience was excellent, fundamentally moving the ball on from a traditional tick box exercise. He understood our unique environment, culture, shareholder complexity and heritage. He rapidly covered all areas, with real insight, from the strategic, to the dynamics. Mixing a relaxed style, with never pulling any punches, he focused on what was often not being said and framed the change needed as pragmatic developments. I would readily recommend Joel for any similar board review or board development process!”
