It’s tough being a Board Director these days. Gone are the days of a fee and a good lunch once a quarter.
It is even harder to be an effective director in a fast moving global market place. Even if each individual on the board is effective in their own way is the Board as a whole achieving its full potential and leading the organisation to a successful long term future?
What makes a Board successful? If you are a member of a Board, how well do you play your part in its success or do you lack the self-confidence to achieve your full potential on the Board?
The Institute of Directors is running a one-day course on October 8 called ‘Effective Directorship, fulfilling your role on the Board’ which is aimed at recently appointed directors, directors in waiting, or those who feel they lack self-confidence in the board room. It will be fully participative and will enable attendees to
l Consider processes that contribute to Board effectiveness;
l Reflect on their own strengths and how to best use them;
l Explore with peers some of the derailers of effective Boards;
l Explore the value of diversity on the Board
Ann Clayton, course tutor, said ‘Many directors, particularly those newly appointed, can lack selfconfidence in the board room.
‘This course provides guidance on how they can identify and use their strengths to become more effective directors.
‘It also looks at the overall value of diversity of thinking and feeling and how individual directors can use their skills to get their voice heard in the board room.’
