The next Cornwall date will combine the final two modules into one full day workshop. Please join us for a day looking at building and managing relationships with trustees and staff / volunteers and how to develop an effective board. Lunch will be provided giving more time to meet with fellow Chairs and Vice Chairs.
Managing relationships and board dynamics: recruiting and working one-to-one with trustees and senior staff (module 3)
The leadership role of Chair means that you need to manage dynamics amongst your trustees and between your trustees and staff or volunteers. This can be a complex and challenging task.
This workshop aims to provide you with practical guidance and tools to help you navigate this challenge and effectively work with your trustees and key individuals such as your CEO or operational lead.
Feedback from participant:
‘Excellent session which is fundamental to good governance. Well paced with supportive workbook.’
Josephine Burt, Chair, National Women’s Register
By the end of the workshop you will:
- Understand what will help you get the best from your trustees
- Have tools to work effectively with your CEO and or senior team
- Have ideas for identifying, recruiting and effectively working with new trustees.
Developing an effective board team (module 4)
Do your trustees work well together? Are you able to deal with conflict effectively?
As Chair, your role includes enabling your board to work well together and supporting your trustees to resolve any conflict. This might mean having difficult conversations with one or more of your trustees to confront problematic behaviours.
This workshop aims to provide you with practical guidance and tools to help you develop the board as a team and give you the confidence to deal with any conflict at an early stage.
By the end of this pilot workshop you will be able to:
- Enable your board to work well together
- Manage conflict and support difficult conversations
- Put in place succession plans for your role as Chair.
About the programme
Our Beacon Programme has been developed with the complexities of chairing a smaller organisation (with an annual income of under £1 million) in mind. For example where executive roles are performed in a part-time or voluntary capacity and where people have both operational and governance roles.
As part of the session you will have the opportunity to share learning with Chairs of other smaller organisations. This combined session will give additional time for you to meet and talk with others in the group over lunch.
9:15am – Registration and refreshments
9:30am – Managing Relationships and Board Dynamics
1:00 pm – Lunch
1:45pm – Developing an Effective Board
5:15pm – Close
