This webinar is the final session in our Lunch & Learn Board Webinar Series. Nonprofits are not simply business models but rather a hybrid of community and business. As such boards must rely upon effective collaboration to be successful. Everything from strategy and operations to managing resources and risks relies upon highly engaged boards operating in collaborative cultures that ensure broad input into decision-making. The best boards understand how to create a high-performance culture that promotes effective leadership through teamwork and collaboration.  Drawing upon theories of organization behavior, this webinar will examine strategies for creating a collaborative board culture that delivers higher levels of productivity and satisfaction.  Topics will include creating a collaborative culture and values, building organizational commitment, cultivating collective thinking, and using a team approach to build sustainable board engagement and satisfaction.

This webinar series is best suited for:
  • Executive Directors
  • Board Members
  • Senior Leadership Staff
