  • May 7, 2013 (8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.)
  • The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel, State College, Pa.
Who Should Attend:    
  • Directors of electric cooperative boards
  • An instructor-led course available in a one-day format
Course Overview:     
  • Directors have official responsibilities but they also tend to conform to the unique culture of their boardroom. Some cultures can promote board effectiveness, but others lead to conflict, complacency or similar counter-productive behaviors. This course explains the concept of boardroom culture through an examination of real board case studies, and it discusses why directors should understand and monitor their own boardroom cultures.

Key Topics Include:    

  • How boardroom cultures develop and how they impact the board's effectiveness
  • Case studies in boardoom conflict and boardroom complacency, and what directors can do to limit threats and risks of a counter-productive culture
  • How boards deal with risk and other unintended consequences
