Essential Chairing Skills at Board Level

For most public appointments for the role of the Chair, the responsibilities usually outlined as “ensuring the Board operates effectively and makes collegiate and inclusive decision and observes high ethical standards.” What does this mean in practice?

Essential Chairing Skills at Board Level is a vital online course within our Accountability & Governance series, our trainer Seamus Gillen will explore group dynamics often observed in Boards and how the Chair can effectively facilitate discussions. This way Board members can maximise their contribution and create high quality decisions.

At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
