Executive Retreat 2017: Coming Together to Discover, Collaborate, and Learn
An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating until December 8, 2017
This event is hosted in Eastern Time.
BoardSource has long recognized that it can be “lonely at the top” for those individuals who serve as nonprofit chief executives and executive directors. While the chief staff position can bring a number of very meaningful rewards, it also can be isolating. Most nonprofit executives have found that as they have ascended the career ladder, the number of people they can truly confide in has dwindled, as has the number of resources that speak to their unique and singular position and the challenges that come with it. That’s about to change!
During a collaborative and restorative three-day program that will take place at the Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort in South Carolina’s beautiful Low Country, you will have the opportunity to meet and connect with other nonprofit executives from throughout the U.S. and sector who understand exactly what you’re experiencing as your organization’s chief staff leader. Together with a nationally respected faculty, you’ll discuss what it takes to strengthen the leadership partnership between you and your board, as well have the opportunity to have open and honest conversations with your peers about the unique challenges of your role. The course will encourage self-reflection and provide a “safe” place for sharing and learning.
You will walk away with
- tools to help you build the strength of your partnership with your board of directors from the fiduciary, generative, and strategic perspectives
- new skills and strategies for communicating effectively with your board
- new ideas and energy from partnering and innovating with a select group of peers through group projects, class and small-group discussions, and valuable time spent in and outside of formal sessions
The Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort is easily accessible from the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport and is within driving distance from several major cities.
