Effective Governance - Kalamazoo

Effective Governance: What Every Organizational Leader Should Know About Running a High-Performance Organization

Good leaders are not born, they are trained. Volunteer leaders in associations and non-profit organizations come to those leadership positions from a variety of “day-jobs” including educators, public servants, realtors, or small business owners. Just as many of those day-jobs comprise a defined body of knowledge and skills, so does leadership. Just as it's true that certain persons have innate talents and abilities that make them more likely to be good at their day-job, so also certain people have innate talents that make them more likely to be good leaders. However, without proper training and practice, people will neither be good leaders or good at their day-job. This interactive workshop will focus on the critical skills and abilities needed for effective leadership in non-profit organizations.
