Find out how you score in the following key areas:
Company directors need a range of knowledge, skills and experience. You also need soft skills and personal qualities.
Regardless of knowledge, expertise and experience, there are some qualities that help you be more effective as a director.
Corporate governance covers roles and responsibilities and spells out the rules and procedures for making decisions.
Although boards can expect to be guided by the finance director, all directors need a basic understanding of accounts and finance.
The primary task of boards is to establish direction, develop and continually refine and monitor the implementation of long term strategy.
To become an effective director there are steps you should take to access information, training and mentoring to meet your evolving needs.
