THIS SESSION WILL RUN ONLINEThe IoD takes the health and safety of our attendees and speakers very seriously. As you know we have been monitoring the status of Covid-19 and the government’s advice closely. In light of the current outbreak in the UK, and the developments within the last couple of weeks, we have taken the decision to move this course online.
The IoD is here to help you be the best leader you can be. Whether you’ve been a director for days or decades, there is always something new to discover about the role, your responsibilities, and the business world around you. In an economy that’s changing by the day, it’s never been more important to be on top of your game with professional development. To help you understand your role as a director, and future-proof your board and organisation, we’ve developed our Professional Director Series – bringing accessible and digestible CPD to your region on the topics that matter. The whole series – wherever you are in the UK - is mapped to the IoD Director Competency Framework, keeping your learning relevant, up-to-date and in line with your professional development ambitions. Whether you’re embarking on the Certificate in Company Direction or are a qualified Chartered Director, this CPD series is the perfect accompaniment – or refresher – to your existing knowledge.You’ll also be part of a group of leaders from organisations of all shapes and sizes across the country, giving you the opportunity to connect, learn from each other, share your setbacks and successes, and encourage each other at the most senior level. Although the course is online you will still have the opportunity for peer to peer learning through interactivity on camera during the regular breaks, breakout sessions and group work.The morning session will include two carefully designed courses on 'Strategic Decision Making' and 'Leading from the Chair'. The afternoon session will explore the popular courses 'Step to the Top' and 'Company purpose and ESG – driving long-term value'.Course attendees can either register for a morning session, an afternoon session or the full day.
Leading from the Chair - Morning Course 1OverviewThe role of the chair in an organisation is often misunderstood and regularly becomes confused with the role of the CEO. A chair’s role is far more than organising and managing the process of board meeting execution. Analysis of successful organisations has revealed that the leadership role of the chair is vital in order to ensure that the board as a team makes decisions and discharges its duties and obligations effectively. This session will clarify the chair’s leadership role in order to unleash the value creating potential of the board.Having completed this session, delegates will be able to:1. Outline the purpose of the chair and their role and responsibilities, in particular how their role differs from the role of the CEO 2. Describe the skills, attributes and characteristics of an effective chair 3. Identify how the chair can help to create an effective board and add value both in and out of the boardroom
