Boardroom Mastery™

Decisions made in the boardroom have powerful consequences. Director behaviour, personal biases, processes and personal conduct all have influence over those decisions. Boardroom Mastery is a unique three-day course designed to explore, develop and challenge your thinking and behaviour and its impact on board dynamics and effectiveness.

Right course for you

Is this course right for you?

Boardroom Mastery is a challenging, transformative experience for those who already have a deep understanding of governance, director roles and boardroom responsibilities. It is designed for experienced directors who are ready to take their personal performance to the next level.

We recommended that participants have completed the Company Directors Course and have a minimum of three years director experience or alternatively have equivalent director experience of at least five years. Attendance at the course is by application only. Participants are expected to demonstrate a track record of broad boardroom knowledge and experience.

Course learnings

What will you learn?

Boardroom Mastery is a transformational development opportunity for highly experienced directors. It examines strategies, best practice, rarely-considered soft skills including board dynamics, communication and the relationship building.

  • Greater self-awareness by knowing your expertise and its limits, your motives and biases, your behaviours at your best and your worst.
  • Improved self-control by managing attention, focus, emotional responses, contributions and task and group behaviour.
  • Increased boardroom awareness to identify power and influence games, structural and perspective biases, decision stages and dynamics, and dysfunctional behaviour patterns.
Course expectations

What can you expect?

Boardroom MasteryTM transforms your understanding of boardroom dynamics. It is an immersive learning simulation designed to challenge experienced directors to perform under high pressure conditions.

Over three days, you will be on a board and analyse information, share views and decide courses of action to address realistic governance and crisis scenarios. Facilitated by experienced governance experts and organisational psychologists, the course focuses on self-mastery, emotional intelligence, personal and group effectiveness.

Prior to commencement, you will have a unique opportunity to understand your personal and professional strengths, and areas for development, through a confidential coaching session with an independent organisational psychologist. The consulting psychologist will attend the three days of the course and provide you with further individual feedback.

After completion of the course, an organisational psychologist will provide you with individual coaching to apply new skills and approaches to embed your learning and enhance your contribution and performance on the board.

Through goal setting, self-reflection, groupwork and continuous feedback, this applied learning course is the essential next step for experienced directors wanting to take their non-executive career to the next level.
