Establishing Board-Staff Leadership Teams That Work

Developing and maintaining effective relationships between the Board, Chief Executive and senior staff is among the most important and difficult tasks that leaders face.

The variety and ever-changing nature of personal, political and organizational dynamics can challenge even the most experienced leader. Leaders must have a sound personal foundation as well as effective organizational and governance systems in place to achieve team cohesion. This workshop explores the challenges that face leadership teams, the importance of role definition, the use of governance models, and the approaches that both administrators and board members can employ to address team dysfunction.
