This one-day workshop (9-5) explores the pivotal role of the Chair. Perhaps the single most important area within which a board can improve its effectiveness is how it is chaired. This requires two things to happen – the Chair leads the board and the understanding by the other directors of the rules of engagement. Have you ever noticed how good Chairs seem to effortlessly get through the business of the board and yet ensure that everyone has their say? Have you noticed when you leave the board meeting with a sense of achievement rather than the nagging doubt that it probably was not the best use of your time? The ability to chair any meeting is an important facet in the development of managers; once appointed to a board there is more than likely to be a requirement to chair board sub-committees or lead the board itself at some time in the future. Too often the training in the art of chairing a meeting or leading a board is left to chance or learning by observing others.
There are some basic rules of the game which this workshop seeks to explore –
This is a highly interactive workshop which seeks to outline the theory of leading boards and put this theory to the test through group discussion, workshops and case studies. The theory will assist delegates to develop their knowledge and understanding of the art of listening, group dynamics and managing conflicts.
