An Interactive 5-Day Training Course

Board Leadership Masterclass

Helping Your Organization Excelas a Member of the Executive Committee

Course Introduction

This Oxford Management Centre training course is designed to enable members of the board – and those who will become board-level directors in the near future – significantly elevate their leadership effectiveness. Boardroom leadership plays a pivotal role in ensuring organizational success, and directors who fail to live up to the demands and challenges of their roles are likely to place both themselves and their organizations at a distinct disadvantage. Investors agree, and frequently cite the quality of the executive team as the single most important non-financial factor in evaluating a new IPO.

In this engaging and interactive 5-day training course, participants will engage with the roles and responsibilities of the board on a fundamental level and discover how astute leadership can multiply their effectiveness. They will learn how to inspire extraordinary performance and lead others through change and transformation. They will also sharpen their strategic thinking muscle and become savvy shapers of organizational culture. As a result, delegates will return to their organizations, ready to take their performance to the next level.
