Increased corporate governance skills
Understanding and appreciating what corporate governance is and how to implement best practice methodologies into organisations is important for ensuring personal and organisational compliance and sound operations. It ensures that shareholders, customers, and other important stakeholders, are confident with the business, its leaders, and its management.
Improved strategic and business acumen
Becoming competent in ‘the business of doing business’ helps you to discern the interdependence of all aspects of business operations. Understanding the link between all of an organisation’s parts makes way for greater informed decision-making and broader consideration of the impact and requirements of board-level strategic decisions.
Better understanding of board and business processes and operations
The board environment is full of unusual and highly formulated processes and procedures, all tied in with a good dose of interpersonal politics. You will learn and understand how to navigate this environment to ensure that you survive and thrive. And understand the difference between strategic and operational matters.
Confidence is increased through acquiring new knowledge. You will find yourself knowing the right questions to be asking at board meetings, and be contributing and leading discussions with conviction and self-assurance.
Further developed leadership and interpersonal skills
Life as a company director involves being a leader within an organisation and with its stakeholders. With this comes the need for you to be able to form and leverage important relationships with a wide range of individuals, all with their own agenda. Refining and honing your interpersonal and leadership skills helps you to successfully manoeuvre yourself, the board, and the organisation through its operating environment.
Improved decision making
All of the above benefits ultimately lead you to be able to make better-informed strategic decisions that you have confidence and faith in. This improved decision making ability will serve you in all situations and organisations that you work within.
Access to a network of like-minded people
You have access to connect with other like-minded new and aspiring directors locally, nationally, and internationally through the online course forum. This helps broaden your learning environment and personal network.
