TGW Sounding board session

Among the directors or those involved in governance there may be a need for perceptions and proposed decision-making within the organisation to be examined. One or two sounding board sessions with The Good Worker can create clarity in a short period of time.

The supervision and control of healthcare organisations in the Netherlands is structured formally (see inset). In addition to these formal structures, directors and governors sometimes wish to step back from their day-to-day activities and reflect. Depending on the phase of opinion forming and decision making that has been reached, sound boarding is not always possible or desirable within the organisation.

The Good Worker offers sound boarding at the academic level, with knowledge and experience of decision making within senior management, organisational development and mergers. We help formulate what the issues are, ask the right questions, and exchange ideas in order to identify possible interventions. This also applies in the field of ICT, an area where directors and those involved in governance frequently feel less at home.


The strategic leadership and final responsibility for everything that happens within the larger healthcare organisations in the Netherlands is generally in the hands of a Board of Directors. Executive directors within the healhtcare organisation are responsible for the concrete implementation of policy, and they are accountable for this to the Board of Directors. They are in turn accountable to the Board of Governors or Supervisory Board, which sets and examines policy. In particular, the Board of Governors or Supervisory Board monitors whether the Board of Directors pays sufficient attention to the importance of the organisation in relation to its social function and the interests of all those involved in the organisation, in its policy formation and the performance of its own tasks.
