Webinar 201: How to Conduct a Successful Board Retreat
April 26, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
This event is hosted in Eastern Time.
Board retreats offer an opportunity to address sensitive or big issues, such as board involvement in fundraising, evaluating or developing a new strategic plan, or other forward-thinking topics. At the same time, not all board retreats are structured properly and can end up being focused on negatives, such as disagreements about the board’s fundraising role, internal political dynamics, and controlling board members with strong opinions and ideas that may differ from the group. This webinar provides a road map to increase the effectiveness of your retreat by addressing these issues and ensuring that the focus remains on supporting the mission of the organization.
Board leaders will learn how to
- address and avoid the potential difficulties, dangers, and pitfalls that can adversely impact board retreats
- learn how to navigate and address sensitive topics and minimize the impact of internal political dynamics
- differentiate your retreat from standard board meetings and ensure that participants walk away with a sense of accomplishment
- use a proven methodology to design a successful retreat with tangible outcomes
Join us to explore key strategies and techniques to design, develop, and conduct a successful board leadership retreat.
