The Mentoring circles is a group mentoring initiative facilitated by the IoDSA, for aspiring and experienced directors. The aim of these 3 hour sessions are to offer directors (the mentees) feedback and guidance from seasoned directors (the mentors), on the personal and social competencies outlined in the Director Competency Framework.

A significant tranche of popular, business and academic literature increasingly points to the need for ‘courageous leadership’. Leadership is crucial in times of change, and it is in such times that prevailing paradigms and approaches may need to be challenged.

Based on the discussions at Directors’ Circles, courage may be required to speak up when:

Unethical behaviour is evident in the Board, collectively or within individuals
The existing strategy or vision becomes obsolete, for a variety of reasons
Poor governance is being practiced
Personal agendas are affecting company performance or risking company reputation
Stakeholder demands and shareholder demands are apparently in conflict
A Director’s personal values are conflicted by the company values or behaviour

Key Focus Areas

What helps Directors to be courageous?
What impedes the expression of courage when it is needed?
What is put at risk – personally and organisationally - when Directors are courageous?
How do Directors get support in being courageous?
How do Directors determine when to speak up or not?
What are the qualities of a courageous Director?
Should courageous leadership be rewarded by companies?
