Good Governance is Good Leadership

We understand that governance is a leadership process and that boards need the tools, systems and processes to ensure they deliver the best possible outcomes for their organisation.

Community Business Australia’s consultation begins by reviewing an organisation’s current methods against best practice governance principles and practices. We then facilitate a reflection process that helps board members identify how their organisation’s governance plan could be better for them.

Our expertise in this area is underpinned by the most comprehensive and practical online governance system in the country. We use this system to help develop a governance framework for organisations. We then teach key stakeholders how to use these tools to stay on top of their responsibilities and how to create the most effective governance processes possible.

Our Governance system:

  • provides practical, easy-to-use tools and resources
  • enables clear understanding of the board’s governance roles and responsibilities
  • assists the board to practically apply effective leadership through governance principles, policies and procedures
