Governing with Intention™

Chair with Intention™ | September 2018 | Public & Private Company

As goes the chair, so goes the board – its dynamics, its performance, its effectiveness. Leadership is a board imperative. Organizational success demands that boards not only develop the leadership they need today, but also build the leadership of tomorrow.

Chair with IntentionTM is our 1.5 day course for current and incoming chairs of Public & Private companies . Participants network with peers facing similar issues to develop their chairship - the skills, practices and approaches that differentiate board leaders from meeting administrators.
