Effective Chairing Skills


A detailed role of the Chair person is not legally defined, but it is widely accepted that the role of the Chair, beyond providing leadership to the Board, englobes the following: 

  • Taking responsibility for the Board’s composition and overseeing induction & development of directors
  • Planning Board meetings and ensuring appropriate information for the Board
  • Conducting board meetings effectively and engaging all Board members
  • Actively engaging the Board in assessing and improving its performance
  • Supporting the CEO

The course is highly interactive, putting participants in real life Board situations to analyse the challenges of the Chair person and identify practical “what to do” and “how to do it” actions to be an effective Chair person. 

Lastly, the course will give you access to a seasoned Chairman, who will share his experiences and give you the opportunity to ask questions and get experienced insights on practical matters of chairing a Board.
