Pinnacle Performance Enhancement Series - Creating Hi Resilient Boards that Deliver

Date: 18 December 2020
Venue: Digital

About the Programme:

The present pandemic is unprecedented, exposing organisations to unheard situations. It has brought the issue of leadership into a sharper focus, as it can foster synergistic alliance amongst divergent constituents into a cohesive unit, to deliver on a common goal. 

Corporate boards play a critical role towards sustenance and growth. Successful board members help the organization constantly create value in the eyes of various stakeholders, while adhering to the regulatory guidelines for the organization to thrive ethically.

A board of directors is a unique entity, comprising top leaders, bringing together a plethora of professional experiences and uniqueness both in terms of style and skills. While functional directors and C-Suite executives get operationally involved, the challenge for non-executive  members multiplies. They are required to maintain their independence and optimize the organisation’s benefit from the decision proposed. In the present context they face the challenge of high expectations from multiple stakeholder groups, be it regulators, investors, customers and most importantly employees of the organization. 

CII with its long history of developing solutions for industry was approached by members to come out with a specific intervention to fill the gap in capacity, existing at this level. After  thorough research through its dedicated Centre of Excellence for Leadership (COEL) in  partnership with Catalyst Executive Education Institute (CEEI) it has come up with a long  duration curated performance enhancement series titled Pinnacle: Creating Hi-Performance  Resilient Boards that Deliver with a clear set of deliverables.
