Board of Directors Good Governance

A high-performing board is both productive and efficient. It aids the telco in fulfilling its vision, without creating undue burdens. Each director makes a vital contribution to deliberations and decision-making.  The board is a harmonious and unified body.

Good governance is the framework for high-performing boards. The special Cronin webinar is based on decades of experience working with telco boards, learning best practices and identifying common needs.

The program covers –

  • Director Qualifications and Requirements
  • Micromanagement Traps to Avoid
  • Board Protocols and Best Practices
  • Director Rights
  • Board Succession Planning
  • Board Evaluation Tool – a complimentary 12-point report card to grade your board’s effectiveness

The one-hour online session is an instant booster to board performance and establishes a pathway to greater success over time. Cronin president Tim Owens is well known for his blunt, but productive style and for challenging norms. Directors will be refreshed and motivated to make positive changes for the greater good of the telco.

What Our Clients Say About Cronin Board Training

“Our board found the Cronin training to be a valuable learning resource. They liked that they had the ability to watch the sessions online and on their own time. They have been able to apply the information at board meetings and strategy discussions.”

Jason M. Smith, General Manager/CEO, Rainbow Communications - Kansas
“The Cronin Board Series training is a cost effective and flexible method to educate board members on our industry. Tim Owens is exceptional in how he is able to explain complex subjects in layman terms, making it easier for newer board members to understand the complexities of our industry.”
Jeff T. Wilson, CEO/General Manager, West Carolina Tel - South Carolina

“We dedicated an hour at each board meeting to view the recording as a group. We felt it worked best for us and allowed us to collaborate on certain subjects.

Cronin did an excellent job at keeping the topic at a level that was clear, relevant and easy to understand. They took tough industry topics and put them in more common terms and then explained the applications and how we might be implementing them in our companies. We look forward to seeing what’s on next season’s agenda.”

Andrew Randol, General Manager, Panora Telco - Iowa

“The Dumont Telephone Board of Directors and I attended the inaugural Series. We watched the sessions together each month after our regular board meeting. We thought it worked out real well to view the sessions on-demand. I enjoyed it and it facilitated discussion for our board.

We think the training was good for two reasons. First, it provided necessary information for our Directors to understand details of the different subjects and second, it supported much of the work we have done with our FTTH projects. I think everyone has a better understanding of how FTTH makes it easier for the company to provide services and better service for the customer. Thanks for offering the online sessions. They were convenient and we saved on the cost of eight people traveling.”

Roger Kregel, General Manager, Dumont Telephone - Iowa

“The content of the Board Series was applicable for both new and senior directors. We viewed each session as a group during our board meetings.”

“The sessions provided a high level view of how technology is shaping the telecommunications market and contained material the directors haven’t been exposed to in other training sessions.”

“The candor of the Board Governance session was appreciated – very good recommendations to increase efficiencies and allow the directors more time to focus on the important things like strategic planning.”

“Our experience with Cronin’s Board Series has been excellent! The Norvado Board of Directors has nothing but positive comments about the series. They feel that the videos have been excellent and has prompted much positive discussion in the Board Room. Education for Directors that they can understand.

In my over thirty years of working with Directors using this series of video has been the best education tool that I have seen.”

Dave Carter, General Manager (Retired), Norvado - Wisconsin

The Board of Directors at CCT enjoyed Cronin’s Good Governance session. We’ve made positive changes based on recommendations of making better use of time and being more mindful of fiduciary responsibilities.
