Course expectations

What can you expect?

Boardroom Mastery transforms your understanding of boardroom dynamics. It is a unique experience designed to challenge; to develop self-awareness; and to advance director capabilities.

Facilitated by experienced governance experts, the focus is on self-mastery, emotional intelligence and personal effectiveness.

Prior to commencement, participants have an opportunity to uncover and understand their personal and professional strengths and areas of development through a coaching session with an independent organisational psychologist. The psychologist will attend the three days of the course and will provide further individual feedback. After the completion of the course, there is a further opportunity to embed learning and apply new approaches.

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.
