Leadership Excellence—Good Governance

Welcome back!

I am teaching an elective for executive directors at the Urban Youth Workers Institute (UYWI08) on Thursday, May 15, 2008 at Azusa Pacific University. If you are going to the conference, I hope you will check out this workshop. Time: 1:30 PM- 3:00 PM Room: Duke 106

How can you attract and retain good board members? Give them the right job and the right tools. Governance is the highest level of organizational leadership. The job of governance needs to emphasize values, vision, empowerment of both board and staff, and the strategic ability to lead leaders. Workshop participants (board members and staff leaders) will (1) gain appreciation of leadership through
governance, (2) define roles of management and board distinct from one another,
(3) identify the unique job outputs of the board, (4) avoid meddling and “rubber-stamping.”

Your ideas matter here! Please leave a comment.
