Strong behavioural dynamics, underpinned by a high degree of self-awareness, power a Board’s effectiveness. They provide an environment where every board member is valued and treated respectfully so that they are aligned, confident, inspired and able to contribute to effective oversight and decision making. This module explores the topic in depth in a highly participative and practical way from building high performing boards to managing conflict and dealing with dysfunction.
