Event Description

excellenciain partnership withLauriate

The Becoming a Non-Executive Director - for Coaches and Mentors course is designed for coaches, mentors and other professionals who possess these skillsets including organisational psychologists and business consultants. It is also of value to anyone who has substantial experience and expertise in harnessing individual as well as team effectiveness at board level, and who is experienced as an Executive Director or CEO.

Coaching and mentoring skillsets are different from those which are typically sought for the NED role. Bringing these skillsets into the boardroom as being valuable in themselves, provides considerable scope for increasing the diversity, well-being and effectiveness of organisations in the current volatile, complex and uncertain economic climate. HR professionals and recruiters seeking to appoint NED’s from a wider selection pool will also find this course valuable in providing what they need to support their clients in making informed decisions.

For the coach or mentor as NED this course enables you to:-

  • Plan and prepare for your first NED position with a real sense of what is expected of you as a NED and how you can meet these challenges.
  • Receive essential knowledge about roles, responsibilities, strategic focus and corporate governance that are key foundations for a Non-Executive board role.
  • Understand up to date thinking on corporate governance and the responsibilities of owners, the board, employees as well as you as a NED.
  • Appreciate the various ways and circumstances in which non-executive directors can make an effective contribution to a board’s work.
  • Understand methods for selection including key motivators and rewards along with the practicalities of the selection process.
  • Experience practical sessions on how to identify NED opportunities that are right for you, with emphasis on how to present your experiences with clarity and relevance. These will help you navigate the process of obtaining your first appointment and performing due diligence before you are appointed to the role.
