Core Content

The workshop “Building Better Boards” consists of two highly interactive days including case studies and activities covering various contemporary corporate governance and board topics. It will use the Rhodes' TIP philosophy to introduce board directors to their strategic role as the brain of the firm.

The workshop also includes significant time for board members to discuss board and more general business issues with each other in a confidential and informal setting. Through the course of the workshop, we will cover 7 main themes. We address the fundamentals of corporate governance and the latest global trends. We assess the role of the board and look at directors’ increasing liabilities. We then debate the trends for ethical leadership and corporate citizenship.

Strategy and strategic thinking is a key role of the board and we look at the best practices as well as overseeing execution. Since the financial crisis, risk management has also become an increasingly important role for the board – how do we manage risk in an age of such uncertainty? We look at the business approach to risk. 

Board and effectiveness are “buzz words” today so we will look at how a board becomes effective and how it knows if it is effective.  And then finally we will look at learning organizations and management and accountability.
