Achieving board effectiveness through strong leadership

INSEAD’s Leading from the Chair programme provides chairs with the opportunity to discover, share and practise techniques for achieving greater board effectiveness. Because the role of the chair in particular has assumed greater significance, visibility and complexity than in the past, an increasingly different skill set and distinctive form of engaged, informed and strong board leadership is required.

From setting direction and shaping strategy to acting as the pivot between the board, CEO and external stakeholders, the demands and challenges facing chairs are ever-increasing. In this context, the need for an exceptional chair has never been more crucial in board effectiveness and influencing organisational performance and direction. This programme is designed to sharpen your skills for leading an effective and high-performing board, which can effectively set and implement the company’s direction and strategy.

Participant profile

Leading from the Chair focuses on the key role of the chair in leading the board of directors and relies on the exchange of ideas among participants with relevant experience. It is designed for the chairs and vice-chairs of boards of directors. To ensure productive diversity programme, directors may admit up to one quarter of participants who currently do not occupy chair’s positions – chairs of major board committees with significant experience, chairs of management boards and executive committees, members of regulatory governing bodies, chiefs of staff from the government or military.
