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?

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:

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.
