Benefits Beyond the Boardroom - Using Corporate Governance Training skills in company to company conflict
Benefit beyond the Boardroom
An Executive Director recounted how her company had been involved in a dispute with another company which had quickly become both personal and public as the dispute became more entrenched. Frustrated, her company had resorted to both litigation and mediation in an attempt to settle the dispute. After attending the Corporate Governance course, and using the skills that she had learnt, she was able to understand the dispute clearly for the first time. By working to remove the emotion that had been building up in the conversations, she was better able to make the discussion objective allowing the companies to discuss practical options and eventually come to a mutual agreement.
