There is a two-way link between leadership and governance:
“Particularly in highly regulated industries such as health and social care, the mechanics of governance needs to perform well, but not become the central focus of an organisation’s development. Governance should facilitate excellent organisational performance: it is not an end in itself.”
Good Governance Institute, UK
The previous interview with social enterprise governors suggests there are many types of governance structure. For example, one of the main roles for governors being enterprise-wide risk management. While governors provide strategic direction the leadership team hold accountability for the enterprise.
