SOLD OUT- "Culture in the Boardroom: Fostering Emotional Intelligence in the Boardroom"

If you are a Board member, you have probably experienced frustration at the process of a particular meeting, or perhaps have looked back at a whole board experience and wondered how could I have contributed more, or why weren’t we smarter, or more thoughtful, or more nimble in response to the challenges we faced. The answer most likely lies in the “softer” part of our skill sets, rather than on the more easily defined areas of specific expertise - such as industry knowledge or technical know-how.
