Managing boardroom tension

How can company secretaries guide their boards away from harmful conflict and harness healthy tension to achieve better outcomes for their organisations?

Join us to learn more about the recent collaboration between ICSA: The Governance Institute and Henley Business School which explores how conflict and tension can be managed to produce better board dynamics.

The Conflict and Tension in the Boardroom report offers a simple set of principles to guide boardroom practice alongside insights that chairmen, directors and company secretaries can use to make their boardrooms places of harmony and collaboration, as well as of challenge and independence.

Hear how:

  • Robust debate, open dialogue and tackling uncomfortable issues can benefit boards’ decision making 
  • Conflicts can be resolved outside the boardroom 
  • Relationships can be strengthened, shaped and supported to facilitate better understanding of board roles and dynamics 

Peter Swabey, Policy and Research Director at ICSA, will take you through the key findings and recommendations, and all participants will receive a printed copy of the report.
