Event description

Description

Vantage Point will lead two, half-day workshops in board development training for board and committee chairs, as well as board members, organizational staff and volunteers.

Board Fundamentals: Critical Role of the Board Chair (9:30am - 12:30pm)

Strong leadership is about more than running efficient meetings. Join this half-day workshop to learn key strategies to engage your board in achieving its organizational mission. Participants will:

  • gain a better understanding of the board chair's role;
  • explore how to move your board towards a governance model; and
  • generate ideas for a Board Chair leadership action plan.

Participants will learn context and gain skills to lead the board of directors in four core areas:

  • developing the board itself;
  • developing the Executive Director;
  • developing the organization’s capacity for relevant conversations; and
  • developing strong external relationships.

By the end of this session participants will be able to:

  • apply strategies for maintaining role clarity between the executive director and board members; and
  • identify the right questions and conversations for your board to effectively govern your organization.


Next steps: Strategic Conversations (1:30 - 4:30pm)

Drawing on the Governance as Leadership framework, this master-class will provide you with a strong foundation to shift the focus of your board conversations toward the issues that really matter. Learn how to incorporate generative and strategic conversations into your board culture, gain tools to work towards consensus decision making, and transform the impact of your board conversations.

By the end of this session you will begin to:

  • synthesize and apply principles of the Governance as Leadership framework to your board design and meetings;
  • feel empowered to implement meetings tools that support complicated and complex conversations at the board table; and
  • identify concrete steps you can take immediately to build your capacity to increase board engagement in strategic and generative governance.

Topics covered include:

  • differentiating between fiduciary, strategic and generative modes of governance;
  • preparing your team with tools to understand and embrace a shift from oversight to inquiry; and
  • strategies to develop the governance capacity to have conversations of consequence around the board table.
