“Leaders are only as good as the people they surround themselves with.” (The Personal Boardroom - Zella King and Amanda Scott)

Based on the academic research on the networks of high performers and work with executives, Zella King and Amanda Scott’s Personal Boardroom framework helps individuals to assess where they are now, and where they need to be in terms of critical relationships to success.

Surrounding yourself with the right combination of people can be instrumental to your success in the same way a business carefully selects it’s corporate boardroom. By thinking of yourself as a business, you’ll be able to think differently about the sources of ‘support’ you need to draw depending on your goal.

Key take-aways:

  • Discover the 5 steps to designing your Personal Boardroom
  • Learn about some of the key roles you need to achieve your goal and assess whether you have the right people around you
  • Understand how to choose key members for your Boardroom and assign roles
  • Learn how to have purposeful conversation with your boardroom
