As the liaison between the board and management, it is vital for the governance professional to create, build and manage robust relationships, overcome challenges, defuse conflicts and create a pathway to success in their organization. Emotional intelligence can be a valuable and key skill to harness improve communication, problem-solving and relationships in your professional role.


In this session we consider the evolving role of the governance professional and the emphasis on the range of soft skills that needed for success in the role.  We review the four key components of EQ and explore how each component can be applied to the role of a governance professional. We consider how EQ can support us to build trust from our stakeholders, resolve conflicts and deal with difficult personalities, and techniques for building our resilience and our courage to stand firm, sometimes in the face of severe pressure. We will also consider how EQ can be used to develop our positioning as a role model, coach or mentor.

Outcomes and Benefits: 

Participants will walk away with some practical guidance on how to manage the vast array of EQ challenges they face in their role, to enhance their role as a respected influencer and board adviser. As with any discipline, EQ takes practice and participants will be furnished with some practical exercises to work on.

Who Will Benefit by Attending: 

Corporate and board secretaries, board and Committee Chairs, individual directors, boards (as a collective), and any senior management team member or governance professional that interacts with governance function and/or the board in their organization.
