The Effective Director is a best practice guide for directors who want to improve their personal effectiveness and that of the board on which they serve. Using case studies and research from the Institute of Directors, it provides readers with useful insights into the workings of an effective board and the real importance and benefits of good governance.
Although the book refers to UK law, its advice on leadership has international relevance. After dealing with core issues such as the role of the board and the duties of directors, the book moves onto more practical topics such as building effectiveness, leadership, and using existing talent to deliver extra competitive value. With special reference to small business, the not-for-profit sector, and ethics and values, The Effective Director will help readers review and improve their own performance when responding to governance challenges in their organization.
