Emotional Intelligence for the Governance Professional

As the liaison between the board and management, it is vital for the governance professional to create, build and manage robust relationships, overcome challenges, defuse conflicts and create a pathway to success in your organization. Emotional intelligence can be a valuable and key skill to harness improve communication, problem-solving and relationships in your professional role.

GPC‘s mandate is to be the voice of governance professionals in Canada. Its members deal with all matters affecting corporate governance, from board and committee processes, management and structure, disclosure, stakeholder engagement, legal and corporate compliance, as well as issues crucial to boards, their accountability and oversight.
