Boards and governance

Making the most of your opportunities

If you are serious about leadership you should create opportunities (where you can) and make the most of every opportunity that comes your way.

  • Add leadership and governance into your performance development plan as a way of informing management of your goals and seeking their support.
  • Apply for training courses, both those targeted to women and those that include both men and women.
  • Seek out challenging projects that will stretch your abilities, allow you to learn, and draw your abilities to the attention of senior managers and board members.

If you’re new to governance, you can learn more about boards, board roles and the related documents.
