WOMEN ON CORPORATE BOARDS

A ONE-DAY BOOTCAMP

 

Date Jan. 18th, 2019 Time 10 AM – 4 PM

 

Location: Restaurant in Santa Clara, CA

Name, Address & Directions given upon registration

Continental Breakfast and Lunch Included

 

 

Our first boot camp (in October) was very well received and so we are launching additional ones for those of you who were interested but unable to attend that day.

 

One of the participants sent me a thank you e-mail stating: “Right at the beginning …ArLyne taught me how to speak like a Board member.  By the end of this seminar I was speaking like a board member.

 

This workshop is designed to give you valuable information about boards, as well as to enable you to increase your “street cred” (credibility) through role-playing and other interactive techniques.  This day will be a combination of hard information and lots of shared practice.   This might be just what you need to be accepted by “the big boys.”

 

Thanks mostly to the #MeToo Movement, California is once again in the Vanguard creating legislation to advance gender equality requiring that at least one woman sit on every corporate board. Over the next few years that is expected to increase to having 40% of board composition be women. Although highly controversial – this is an opportunity for all high powered – fast-tracking women to serve at this level.

 

It also is the opportunity for those in “soft-skill” fields to participate with mostly “hard-skill” colleagues.  Although every book on board Development (including my own) states the importance of the soft-skill perspective on the board, it is rare to see anyone in those professions, including serving on corporate boards.  This one day boot camp is designed to give you the information and skills you will need to serve with “the big boys” and shine.  Among the things you will learn:

 

  • Basics of Corporate Governance
  • How your Professional Background adds value
  • Roles of Board Members – and Executive Boards
  • How to be heard – to express yourself effectively
  • Getting Noticed in a Positive Powerful Manner
  • Handling Attempts at Sabotage
  • Board Members relationships with staff
  • How your Professional Background adds value
  • Roles of Board Members – and Executive Boards
  • Assertiveness – Not Aggression
  • Dos and Don’ts of Board Membership
  • Standing Up to Bullies
  • Differences between non-profit and corporate boards

 

Bootcamp Leader:
