Tyranny at the Top:Prestige, Power Plays and the Perils of Poor Process

Dive into the complex world of governance and strategic decision, spotlighting the challenging dynamics within the board of Vector Innovations which is facing a pivotal moment in the organization's history. The board's unity is tested by the forceful leadership of its Chair whose dominant approach has sparked division, stifled dissent and fostering an environment of intimidation.

Using a case study approach, participants will act as the Board of Directors and together will explore solutions to navigate this leadership crisis, balancing the pursuit of innovation with ethical governance practices. This session offers a unique opportunity to engage with real-world scenarios, fostering a deeper understanding of the nuances of board dynamics and the critical importance of maintaining a culture of respect and inclusivity in decision-making. With the support of a facilitator at each breakout, participants will deliberate and explore issues, options and try and find the best way forward.

Your moderator will introduce the session and guide you through the peer-to-peer process and will also provide additional insights on the issues raised in the case study and how it impacts board performance.
