High Performing NED’s Toolkit

  • Self-awareness is key to being a successful NED. Map your competencies and build a development pathway using a framework built by high-performing NEDs.
  • Our purpose-built diagnostic tool, designed with input from leading NEDs, builds self-awareness of the key competencies and associated knowledge and skills needed to excel in the board room. Results are captured in an easy-to-use report that you will review with your Transpire coach.
  • Use of the Toolkit is one of the three elements of both our New Member Onboarding process and our “Annual MOT” process for established Members, the others being your Board Career Plan and your Personal Development Pathway for the next 12 months, as discussed in a 90 minute session with a Transpire Approved Coach

Aidan Lisser
