Getting diverse people to focus and reach consensus while promoting challenge and change - this is the #1 job of a chair, and requires extraordinary skills.
This one-day event is for board and committee chairs and directors who want to be more effective in the chair. Most boards and committees have largely succeeded in defining structure, charter, roles and responsibilities, but culture and behaviour are at least as important to effective functioning.
In addition to examining the roles and responsibilities of the Chair this workshop will you give an opportunity to practice new skills through interactive simulations of board/committee meetings. With instant feedback from your peers, a skilled facilitator and experts in boardroom functioning, you will leave with a greater sense of your capacity for this challenging and rewarding role.
- Practice chairmanship in interactive board games that simulate board and committee meetings. And, you will:
- Receive instant constructive feedback and practical suggestions on your chairmanship style from your peers and our panel of experienced observers
- Learn how to identify and work with different personality types and problem-solving preferences, including understanding and recognizing how each is motivated and inspired in different ways
- Gain insight into the timing of meeting leadership, from dealing with dissent to knowing when to call for the vote.
- Learn how to deal with underperforming board members
- Avoid pitfalls in director peer evaluation and the evaluation of the CEO
- Learn techniques for building consensus and resolving disputes
- Understand the roles and responsibilities of the Chair
