The challenges facing South African Directors
16 August - Cape Town

This half day programme will be split into 2 sessions:

Session 1

Corporate scandal, governance lapse, courageous leadership or just business as usual? The first 2 hour session will be a presentation aimed at providing delegates with a high level update on some of the current challenges or trends affecting directors.

Session 2

The presentation will be followed by a 3 hour group mentoring session which is facilitated by a *COMENSA credentialed coach, Julie Stacey. The mentoring circles offer new or future directors (the mentees) feedback and guidance from seasoned directors (the mentors), on the personal and social competencies outlined in the Director Competency Framework.

Key focus areas

Snap Shot Session (2 hours):

  • Recent South African case studies highlighting pertinent governance issues
  • Analysis of related events and responses from the board and management
  • Reflection on the learning's can be taken from these cases
  • Discussion on the cause of these events - Is it governance or something else?

Group Mentoring Session (3 hours):

The actual individual challenges to be mentored will be raised during the mentoring circle. The following are intended to serve as thought-starters only:

  • 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?

Half day: 09h00 – 14h30
