Qualities of a good leader



We offer members a range of thought leadership content covering the issues of importance to directors to help as they build their boardroom and leadership skills and capabilities.

We are committed to offering our members a broad range of thought-leadership content to help directors and business leaders build their boardroom skills, make better strategic decisions, and fine-tune their leadership capabilities.

Our content is continually updated to cover the gamut of issues directors are facing. From leadership and performance considerations, to issues including director overload, director independence, board skills and composition, to monthly commentary from our CEO, to the technology issues directors must be across, our articles, opinion pieces and other resources are written by governance experts to provide you with relevant and timely coverage on the matters you need to be across.

We also offer thought leadership pieces that explore over the horizon issues including, for example, the critical importance of future-focused thinking in today’s rapidly evolving environment, how directors can develop their skills in this area, and the consequences for leaders and organisations that don’t adapt and evolve.

Reports on boardroom issues

We produce a range of reports that explore the issues boards are facing now and those that are emerging as challenges for the future. Reports include our quarterly gender diversity reports that look at the composition of Australia’s listed boards; our biannual director sentiment surveys that measure director views on Australian and global economies, government policy and governance regulations; director guides on ethics in the boardroom and board minutes; and Australian-first reports on topics such as the innovation gap in Australian boardrooms. Our range of reports are developed and designed to help directors bring better insights to the boardroom.

High profile director interviews

We interviewed experienced directors and thought leaders who offer their expert knowledge and insights on the leadership issues of today and the emerging challenges facing business leaders and directors of the future.

Sector specific information

Our extensive collection of thought-leadership content covers the range of Australian business sectors (including the not-for-profit and charity sector, the public and private business sectors and the listed sector) as well as the many types of leadership.

Our thought-leadership articles, reports, opinion pieces, interviews and other resources are designed to support your director journey and we trust that you will find this content valuable as you progress through your leadership career.
