Description

Exceptional Boards is an intensive two-day workshop for CEOs and their elected officers to explore strategies for strengthening their working relationship and enhancing the board's performance. Designed specifically for leadership teams, it provides an engaging learning environment where CEOs and elected leaders together will gain insight and resources to improve the effectiveness of board operations and create a strong and vibrant governance team. It is the one program that coaches you on how to build a board that understands its role, fulfills its responsibility, demonstrates visionary leadership, and ultimately leads the organization it represents to new heights.

The workshop covers:

  • strategies for building a cohesive board
  • roles and responsibilities of the CEO and the board
  • creating an effective CEO/board chair relationship
  • developing a leadership team action plan

Exceptional Boards offers you a rare opportunity to step away from the day-to-day routine and discover fresh ideas and approaches for enhancing board leadership. You'll benefit from the facilitators’ knowledge and expertise, but this highly interactive program also engages participants in exercises with their teams. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and engage in open and honest discussions with your officers.
