Fall Art of Chairmanship Seminar

Getting diverse people to focus and reach consensus while promoting challenge and change- this is the #1 job of a chair, and requires extraordinary skills. 

This one-day event is for board and committee chairs and directors who want to be more effective in the chair. Most boards and committees have largely succeeded in defining structure, charter, roles and responsibilities, but culture and behaviour are at least as important to effective functioning. In addition to examining the roles and responsibilities of the Chair this workshop will you give an opportunity to practice new skills through interactive simulations of board/committee meetings. With instant feedback from your peers, a skilled facilitator and experts in boardroom functioning, you will leave with a greater sense of your capacity for this challenging and rewarding role.
