Leadership Institute

With top faculty from the Kellogg School of Management in collaboration with outside governance experts, you’ll improve your understanding of the responsibilities of board membership and develop the skills and strategic insight needed to become a more effective director. You’ll orient yourself to the shareholders’ perspective and gain an understanding of the interests of multiple constituencies. You’ll also learn frameworks that can move the board beyond compliance to the creation of opportunities for long-term value.

Most importantly, you will be prepared to effectively deal with an unpredictable, yet eventually inevitable difficult situation facing you and your board.
