Conflict and interpersonal issues at board or leadership team level are a particularly challenging issue for any organisation. Board members and leaders of organisations are often highly competent technically in their areas of specialisms, but this can create challenges in terms of interpersonal relationships. If these issues are left unaddressed, they often escalate and end up adversely affecting board, team and business performance, and ultimately the bottom line.

This course has been designed in conjunction with the International Finance Corporation and the World Bank. It enables members of board and leadership teams to constructively manage interpersonal conflict and tensions within this pressurised context.

The programme will empower participants to have difficult conversations and handle challenging behaviours of board members and senior management.
