Governance Training Bite #8 (Blenheim): Helping the wrong people over board

  • Wesley Centre 3 Henry Street Blenheim New Zealand (map)

Now, this is the tough stuff. Despite your best intentions, you can still end up with the wrong people on board. How do you tackle the difficult task of 'sacking' a board member? After all, board members are 'just volunteers'. How do you actually get the result you need, but also still act with some grace? How can succession planning actually happen in practice in small organisations, and how do you deal with 'founder syndrome’?

This session will be led by Garth Nowland-Foreman, an experienced trainer and facilitator, and not for profit governance expert. Garth is a director of LEAD Centre for Not for Profit Governance & Leadership.
