The Director Mindset

Examine the different perspectives and decision-making processes of directors.



Think like a director.

Executives who become directors must see things differently, so they can think differently and behave differently. This course will assist in the development of new leadership expertise, setting the right culture and tone from the top and working through others requiring an adjustment from an action orientation to one of influencing, guiding and mentoring.

Our suite of online learning courses offers you the flexibility to choose a learning format that best suits your needs. From 1-hour interactive webinars, to self-paced e-learning courses, our online education options conveniently help you to establish and further your director knowledge. Offering ultimate flexibility, our e-Learning courses provide a way for you to facilitate your own learning on a wide range of key directorship issues at a pace and place that suits you.
