IoD Professional Director Series - Leading from the Chair - Virtual

23 Sep 2020
IoD Virtual Development, Virtual Classroom

IoD Professional Director Series Online

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 your region, giving you the opportunity to connect, learn from each other, share your setbacks and successes, and encourage each other at the most senior level.

Leading from the Chair

The 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:

  • Outline the purpose of the chair and their role and responsibilities, in particular how their role differs from the role of the CEO
  • Describe the skills, attributes and characteristics of an effective chair
  • Identify how the chair can help to create an effective board and add value both in and out of the boardroom
