Many people at board level bring with them considerable knowledge and skills but their individual and group capabilities often let them down. Effective boards rarely ‘just happen’: more often they spend time developing capabilities as individuals rather than as a group. Time spent developing together will enable them to achieve outstanding levels of business and personal performance.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
Martin Luther King Jr
Board development is a four-day programme, delivered on nonconsecutive days. Each day comprises a highly facilitated and participative workshop. Prior to the workshop, a benchmarking process establishes the board ‘starting position’ via a series of one-to-one interviews and personality profiling. Includes personality profile – all delegates receive an ‘Insights®’ personality profile, to help them better understand themselves and how they interact with others.
Board development is intended for board-level executives. The programme is best provided for up to five people from the same board team.
