Exceptional Boards of Directors – on-demand

About Course

This series contains modules that can be taken in bite-sized chunks that can be used in three ways: 1) Board members can watch on their own to build their knowledge and skills; 2) Modules can be shown before each board meeting to offer continuous learning and improvement (hint: that's the hallmark of an exceptional board); or 3) provided for new board members as part of their board orientation.
