Shared Leadership for Advancing Change
Board Chair + Executive Leader = Healthy Leadership Capacity
Facilitated by Justin Pollock
Focusing specifically on the power of a strong partnership between board chairs and executive leaders (ED/CEO), this session opened conversation about what that leadership partnership makes possible for the board, staff and the community and what conditions support each person's ability to contribute to the overall leadership capacity of the organization. Facilitator Justin Pollock walked participants through a series of questions they can ask themselves and their boards to begin the important dialog. Next Steps are to explore these questions with your Board Chair or CEO – define actions that can be taken to move the leader partnership to a stronger position.
