Board leadership isn’t simply something an organization comes by, nor is it a static quality that once developed stays forever. The best boards come from communities that take a long-term perspective and develop leadership as a sustainable resource while creating a high-performance culture that promotes effective leadership through teamwork and collaboration. This includes creating a collaborative culture and values, building organizational commitment, cultivating collective thinking, and using a team approach to build sustainable board engagement and satisfaction.

Board building should be an ongoing process with year-round activities. Applying best practices of sustainability to the topic of board development and drawing upon theories of organization behavior, this webinar guides participants through a process that focuses on the different steps needed to build an effective board that is sustainable over the long term, including strategies for creating a collaborative board culture that delivers higher levels of productivity and satisfaction.


Upon completion of this webinar you should be able to:

      • Apply a team approach to build sustainable board engagement and satisfaction
      • Improve board communication and foster better decision making
      • Conduct board and individual member performance assessments and address poor board behavior
