About this Course

This course provides participants with a look behind the boardroom doors. Today’s directors, and the executive teams with whom they work, are being challenged by the owners of the organization more so than ever to not only protect their interests, but also enhance corporate performance. 

As boards already struggle to balance the growing list of regulatory compliance requirements, we are going to identify and explore three key board leadership roles that differentiate medicore boards from great ones.  We learn about ideas to allow you to make valuable contributions to value creation and long-term viability.  

Whether you are a director or an executive with accountability to the board of directors, this course will help you make your next board meeting more effective and engaging for all concerned.
