Solving Problems and making difficult decisions as a governor

Tuesday 11th February 2020 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at the Holiday Inn, Dodworth

The Governors role in Strategic Leadership means that increasingly we are being expected to make big decisions. To be effective we need to draw on all the specialist skills and knowledge gained from life, governance and work experience. This 2-hour course has been developed to give experienced Chairs, Governors and members of Senior Leadership Teams (SLT) many of the skills needed to solve problems and make effective decisions.
By the end of the course learners will be able to
• Understand the difference between a problem and a symptom
• Use primary and secondary sources of information to help solve problems
• Identify leadership tools that reduce risk in decision making
This course combines a mixture of activity and discussion to achieve maximum benefit for all learners. It is also a practical course that is designed to develop the skills and behaviours that builds the confidence and assertiveness of governors. Why not invite your Head or members of the SLT to join you?
