CMi for Chairs and Non Executives

Stepping up to the Board

A profoundly different and distinctive leadership challenge awaits those aspiring to Chair a Board for the first time or step into a Non Executive role


It involves embarking on a subtle transition from operator to influencer, from counsellor to consensus builder, and above all from talker to listener.

Our Mentors

“Being able to discuss the challenges of a new major NED role with an independent mentor adds real value and focus. My CMi Mentor gave me space to test and weigh ideas, the feedback was direct – based on years of experience and wisdom and tailored to situations. The CMi network is unique, extensive and international.”
