board INDUCTION

This half-day training for boards of international schools is ideal for setting the foundations for effective board work and gaining an understanding of the divide between the strategic and the operational functions within the school.
These board training sessions use Zoom for presentations and discussions to ensure all board members are engaged. Since these sessions are focused on those new to the role, and where the idea is to create an environment where people feel comfortable to ask questions, it is generally effective with smaller groups.

What's Involved?

Anyone new to the role of serving on the board could find the prospect quite daunting. And while everyone has been through a school system and therefore feels qualified to offer their input into the running of an international school, it's important to first understand the roles and responsibilities of board members.

While board members may be elected or invited to serve, and may have a wealth of experience in their own professional sphere of influence, serving on the board requires a different mindset and skillset.

This new board member induction helps identify the essential elements of governance that will serve as a foundation for future impactful work on the board.

Key Takeaways from the induction:

Online Board Induction

As someone new to the board, it may seem hard to know where to start finding answers to your questions.  There are many fantastic books about board governance… but they are generally not aimed at those new to the role or full of jargon.

The board induction program allows new board members to gain perspectives on their important work on the board and encourages questions to get to the heart of the matter – how to be more effective on the board!
