Workshop Three: Building a Board-Worthy Executive Team
The impression an executive makes in the boardroom not only has implications for his/her professional career, it can enhance or detract from the board’s confidence in the management team. Most directors believe their board materials can be improved, often significantly – and many think management presentations can be better, as well. CEOs who make an effort to enhance their executives’ confidence and capabilities in working with the board nearly always receive kudos from their directors. It also leads to better board dialogue and decision-making. This session discusses the essentials of board-friendly materials, key rules for effective board presentations and redesign of the director orientation program, highlighting mistakes executives typically make in all of these areas.
