Event Description

Transform a Good Board into a Great One!

Board of directors comprise a critical functional part in running a company. Yet, the regular evaluation and benchmarking that’s become such a vital part of human resources and executive pay setting in corporate America remains uncommon for boards. In most of the world’s boardrooms, evaluation is still not a common practice – few evaluate their individual members, and fewer still do either well. And “you can’t improve what you can’t measure” applies to boards of directors as much as any other area of business.

Progressive companies view board evaluations as a vital tool for maximizing effectiveness, and improving performance. Join expert speaker, writer, and advisor Ralph Ward in this informative webinar where he will present a step-by-step plan for evaluating your board that you can put to work immediately. Ward will outline how boards can evaluate their performance; explore tools for evaluation; discuss problems that can arise, and show you how to meet them.

After attending this webinar, you and/or your directors will learn not only how to define their strengths and weaknesses, but also how to train and reshape the board. You will learn how to overcome “evaluation fear” and make positive self-assessment a natural aspect of everyday board business. Plus, you will learn how to shape your board’s “talent matrix” going forward as part of strategic board renewal.
