This virtual edition of Exceptional Boards is an online workshop for CEOs and elected officers. Delivered live and highly interactive with plenty of time to process what your team is learning, the program fosters effective governance and optimizes the entire board as a cohesive unit through best practices in board organization, structure, and operations. Discover the insight and resources you need to build a high-performing board that understands its role, fulfills its responsibility, demonstrates visionary leadership, and leads the organization to new heights.
Beyond tapping the knowledge and expertise of the program facilitators, you'll connect more deeply with your leadership team as you engage in private team discussions, utilizing online breakout room capability. Additionally, the program harnesses group interaction through polls and chats. CEOs and elected officers will:
