Leadership training is essential to develop managers who can lead your company to success. The wide range of expectations and challenges faced by modern business leaders calls for an equally wide range of training curricula, including motivation training. Leadership motivation training can focus on the internal motivation of leaders themselves, or on their ability to motivate subordinates to put forth their best efforts.

Corporate governance and risk management on the other hand are critical topics that have recently started attracting more attention in business schools and among legislatures, with this trend only increasing. While there are different models for corporate governance and risk management, all of them aim at organizing the relation between company and stakeholders and controlling risks effectively. 

What is more important is the fact that 'Governance, Risk Management, Compliance and Effective Internal Controls' are all part of one system. Unfortunately, not all companies have this avant-garde look towards this system.

This course includes discussions about Leadership-governance, motivation, board structure, committees and their functions while covering the detailed process of managing risks as per the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Tread way Commission (COSO) requirements.

In addition, the course includes a discussion on internal controls that are used to respond to the risks in different areas of the corporation. Compliance is also covered per latest developments.

Course Methodology

The course is built on presentations by the instructor and the participants and includes exercises and case studies to be discussed in the training.
