GovernWell: Effective questioning and challenge, February
Date: 23 February 2021
This course will help governors work confidently and effectively with their directors in posing effective questions to hold the board to account. Listening skills and questioning styles are explored along with how to frame effective questions and challenge within the context of the governor role.
Who is this workshop for?
- For all types of governors.
I feel confident that I can be a more effective governor by sharpening my questions to elicit more appropriate responses from the NEDs and the trust, and help the future direction of the organisation.
Governors will gain:
- an overview of the governance of foundation trusts and the statutory duties of governors
- an understanding of the importance of questioning, listening and challenging as a governor
- an opportunity to self-reflect on their own experience and style of listening and questioning and consider changes they may like to make to their approach
- gain confidence in their role to ensure they are holding to account effectively
- the opportunity to meet and network with their fellow governors.
The course had a nice balance between listening to information and participation in activity. Everyone had the opportunity to participate. Well constructed and very useful examples of how to challenge positively with open questions. Very worthwhile – thank you.
