The inaugural session of the Directors-in-Dialogue series provides the latest thinking on how Board Directors can make a leadership difference by knowing when to take charge, when to partner and when to get out of the way.
Facilitated by Michael Useem and based on his recent book - "Boards that Lead," the session provides practical insights into how Board Directors can lead more efficiently. Board directors need a new road map - for when to lead, when to partner, and when to stay out of the way. Michael advocates a new governance model - a sharp departure from what has been demanded by governance activists, analysts and regulators - and reveals emerging practices that are defining shared leadership of directors and executives.
