Board Leadership: Insight

Event Type: Course

Insight is where the “new ideas” and changes are generated for the organization. In this role, the Director is challenged to think about relevance and takes on a validation role. If something cannont be validated in line with the broader strategic thinking, it needs to change. The question often answered here is, “Does it make sense?”.

Who should participate in this course?

This course is designed to provide knowledge and skills that will help Directors to participate more effectively in the governance of the organization. They will develop a broader understanding of their role in the regular “business” of the organization and how to process or understand the information that they should be receiving. Anyone currently serving on a Board, who is new to a Board or who might be thinking of serving on a NFP Board will benefit from this workshop.
