About this Event

Before the pandemic, working with board leadership could be the most invigorating yet challenging part of an executive’s job. We know that many leaders are currently engaged in different types of conversations with boards about what the next few months and years might look like. The threats and opportunities discussed now will have a profound impact on how your organization can weather the uncertainties of the pandemic and economic downturn. Join us to develop strategies to leverage your board to support your organization, ensure a strong and fulfilling partnership, and work together to safeguard your organization during crisis and come out stronger on the other side.

Topic include:

  • Techniques to create and maintain a rewarding and productive partnership including appropriate division of responsibilities
  • Finding your way when there is no roadmap and no experience to draw upon
  • Navigating relationship building in our "new reality"
  • Understanding and addressing the root causes of tension
  • Defining board financial resource development responsibilities and opportunities
