Course Description


This Strategies for Running Effective Board Meeting training course helps delegates understand and leverage the mechanics of effective board meetings. Members of the board frequently need to get together to reach pivotal, far-reaching decisions. Therefore, ensuring that the considerable experience that resides within the board is fully drawn upon can make the difference between quality outcomes and those that lack it. Sound problem solving and analytical skills, astute decision-making skills, facilitation prowess and a good portion of psychological insight are the key ingredients that set the best meetings apart from those that fail to deliver.

In this engaging and interactive 5-day training course, participants will explore a range of skills that enable them to maximise the output of each board meeting. Delegates will learn how to reach complex decisions as a group, how to generate creative solutions to challenging problems, and how to set effective rules of engagement from the outset. They will also discover how different personality styles affect the quality of a meeting, apply strategies for influencing key stakeholders and learn how to handle conflicts and differing opinions that could otherwise derail a board meeting.
