How to Structure and Value Board Education

Episode Summary

Dan Siciliano, the co-director of Stanford University’s Directors’ College (one of America’s most successful educational events for corporate directors), is put on the hot seat when asked how he would go about setting up a board’s educational program to improve its effectiveness. Siciliano, who is also the faculty director of Stanford’s Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Center for Corporate Governance, shares his views on whether sitting CEOs need director education.

There’s plenty to learn as two long-time board educators discuss everything from budgeting for board training to what role culture and chemistry play in building great boards.
