- Wondered why smart people so often get stuck in group stupidity?
- Been frustrated by a micromanaging boss or board of directors?
- Served on a “working” board of directors, where operational and governance roles were combined?
- Looked for a practical way of “doing more with less”?
- Wished that accountability didn’t have to come at the expense of speed, creativity, and results?
If you sit on or work for a board of directors, or if you have ever held shares in a company hit by failure or scandal, chances are you have seen group dysfunction in action. Why does it seem that most directors are intelligent, accomplished and passionate individuals, but yet somehow boards so often experience frustration, confusion, unpleasant politics, apathy, and burn-out?
Highlighting the distinctions and connections between governance and management, this workshop illustrates an elegant, principle-based system that benefits board members, senior managers, staff, customers, owners, and other stakeholders.
By attending this event, the professional will be able to:
- delegate effectively without stifling creativity
- minimize the complexity of organizational or project communications
- be accountable without sacrificing flexibility or efficiency
- distinguish clearly between governance vs. management roles and functions
- know how to steer an organization vs. how and when to apply the brakes
When people and organizations are continually being urged to “do more with less,” participants of this session will be newly inspired about the possibilities that emerge when good governance and management come together.
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM - Training session
We will start the session promptly at 6:10 PM. Light refreshment will be served.
