Corporate Governance & Conflict Management

This program will address key corporate governance issues faced by boards and principal board committees. Public companies and their directors and officers face increasing responsibilities, and even increased risk of liability. They are also under intense scrutiny and in at least some cases significant pressure from investors and regulators. Changing investor expectations and increased investor willingness to seek or force change, through activist campaigns and other methods, have changed the environment in which directors and officers and their advisers operate. These developments have been complicated by significant legal and regulatory changes, including evolving standards under Delaware law and SEC and other federal developments in rulemaking and enforcement. Corporate governance provides the framework within which directors and officers must operate in fulfilling their responsibilities. In-house and outside advisers are called on both to provide day-to-day counselling and to address crisis situations in the corporate governance context. Our program will both highlight the fast-moving market and legal and regulatory developments that directors, officers and their advisers face, as well as provide practical guidance as to how to address them. This course also couples mediation process with practice in communication skills needed for effective work in governance board settings. Through lecture, clinical exercises, role play, reflective listening skills practice, and group discussions, you will be able to measure the degree to which you achieve the objectives described in your roles, assess how well you are able to preserve your relationships with others, and connect mediation skills with theoretical and philosophical corporate governance practice allowing you to function better as a board director.
