The Boardroom Masterclass (Live Program)

Date: February 2nd to February 23rd (4-week course)
: Online
Time: Noon - 1:30pm (ET), every Thursday    

Even the most skilled board member understands the need to update and maintain their tools and techniques!

Take your board skills to the next level with The Boardroom Masterclass; a 4-week live (online) program designed to explore strategies for leading through difficult decisions and maximizing opportunities for change. Learn how to strengthen the governance process and structure to improve director engagement, performance, and boardroom behaviour.

It's time to understand how you would act in unexpected situations, and how to nail all of the boardroom’s difficult decisions (even those others might be avoiding!).

The content will benefit new directors as a comprehensive grounding to boardroom best practices, and equally, be of value to experienced Board members as an engaging refresher and practical reminder. You will be able to discuss difficult boardroom issues with your peers and explore strategies for:

- Building the optimal board
- Leading through difficult decisions and change
- Onboarding and board renewal in a virtual environment

Boardroom Integrity (This is how we play the game!)

The Boardroom Masterclass touches on high points of governance – ensuring healthy boardroom culture and behaviour – using the lens of integrity: integrity in its fullness, integrity of character, in how power is used, and in the governance system and its processes.

Boardroom Functionality

Through case studies and simulations, you will learn how to ensure the right people are in the right place, aiming their talents in ways that are in the best interests of the organization while understanding and following good governance systems and processes.

Do you want to know how to:

- Tackle root causes of boardroom dysfunction rather than playing whack-a-mole with the symptoms?
- Improve director engagement, performance, and boardroom behaviour?
- Shorten the amount of time you spend in board meetings?
- Build the optimal board?
- Succeed at all of this even in a virtual environment?

So The Boardroom Masterclass is the right program for you!

Week-by-week you will learn how to behave in different boardroom scenarios while networking with peers from other organizations, sectors, and backgrounds.

February 2nd | Who Would You Choose? 
In this case study, you and your peers must choose two board members from a candidate list of five, using a board profile and bios – but the choice may not be as clear-cut as it first appears! You make the choice – but be prepared to tell us why!

February 9th | What Would You Decide?
This scenario will require expert leadership from the chair – if not handled well, an uproar will ensue! Who will the board choose to lead them? Maybe it will be you!

February 16th | What Would You Advise?
Decision-making has stalled entirely at the board level of Northeast Housing Development Company. Can you identify why – and, perhaps more importantly, can you fix it?

February 23rd | What Would You Say?
This boardroom bully is behaving badly! Can you and your peers apply the right strategies for dealing with them?

Be the name people look up to!

Practice new skills through interactive simulations and breakout groups. With instant feedback from your peers, a skilled facilitator, and experts in boardroom functioning, you will leave with a greater sense of your capacity for this challenging and rewarding role.
