Courage in the Boardroom

Women Get On Board

April 27, 2022 | Virtual - 12:00pm to 1:00pm EDT

No one wants to be the director who disrupts the agreeable flow of the proceedings. But it is exactly this sharing and listening to diverse views that produces truly great outcomes at the governance level.

The remedy – don’t let fear outweigh courage. You are at the table for a reason and remaining silent isn’t it. Whatever you have to contribute is likely exactly what the group needs to hear.

Once you’ve faced your fears, gathered your courage, and resolved to raise the issue in the boardroom, what’s the best way to do that and still try to preserve relationships? A savvy director’s thoughts naturally turn to the power of questions. Ask yourself, “How could I ask the gutsy question in a non-offending, non-threatening manner?”

Join us at 12 Noon ET on Wednesday April 27, 2022, when Women Get On Boards Founder and CEO Deborah Rosati interviews Scott Baldwin Co-founder of DirectorPrep.com and publisher of the Sunday morning blog – The Savvy Director​.

Together, Deborah and Scott will explore safe and powerful ways to overcome the natural fear that arises in all of us when we know the question that needs to be asked and it’s up to you to do it.

That’s what we mean when we refer to governance courage. That kind of courage is what gives the Savvy Director the confidence to ask the right questions at the right time.

The good news? We can learn how. You’ve got this.
