Designed by a current secondary school board member, Philip Bradley, the course is directly relevant for New Zealand and school boardrooms. Since 2016 he has coupled experience on the Epsom Girls' Grammar School Board with certification to deliver material from Johns Hopkins University and the Harvard-affiliated Right Question Institute.
Online Course for School Board Members
Asking Quality Questions
the essential Board members tool
A self-paced online course on questioning skills for school board members to improve meeting effectiveness and decision quality.
Do you struggle with asking good questions at the right time? Do you find others over-ride or brush aside what you say? Do you want to contribute meaningfully in board meetings?
If so, this course will confirm why you should question, then provide practical ways on how, what, and when to question. It will give you valuable question ideas which you can use straight away, and it will get you thinking about why people respond in different ways to what you ask.
What you'll learn...
