GOVERNANCE BITES : Helping the Wrong People Overboard

02/07/2020 at 5:15 pm - 7:00 pm

GOVERNANCE BITES are a series of free after-five events offering practical development opportunities in bite-sized pieces for ‘time poor’ and cash-strapped community leaders involved in non-profit boards in Canterbury, served up with pizza.

This session will cover “Helping the Wrong People Overboard”

Now, this is the tough stuff. Despite our best intentions and even efforts, we can still end up with the wrong people on board for various reasons. 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’ when founders have out-lasted their value for the organisation and may even be holding it back?

These sessions are led by Garth Nowland-foreman, an experienced trainer and facilitator, and non-profit governance expert. Garth is a director of LEAD Centre for Not for Profit Governance and Leadership

Please note: While the Governance Bites workshops run as a series, each session can be attended as a standalone workshop if desired. Please register for each session you are interested in via the Volunteering Canterbury listings.
