Director Placement Considerations
Can management and shareholders say, without hesitation, how their board delivers value?
Directors are invariably appointed for their hard skill sets and rarely is EQ considered in the selection process. There is now voluminous research on Cognitive Bias, Argumentative Theory, Developmental Theory, Boardroom Typologies, EQ and Boardroom Culture and Dynamics.
Board Accord has pioneered the application of Integral and Developmental Theory to the Board Space, enabling participants to appreciate a 360* perspective of the entire operation and at the same time the ability to interrogate any single aspect of its operation.
