Beacon Programme workshop for Chairs - Managing Relationships and Board Dynamics

Are you a Chair or Vice Chair of a smaller charity? Find out how to get the best from your trustees and staff team.

When Tuesday 25 June at 1:30pm to 5:15pm, 2019
Where Leeds
LS10 - full details on registration
The leadership role of Chair means that you need to manage dynamics amongst your trustees and between your trustees and staff or volunteers. This can be a complex and challenging task.

This workshop aims to provide you with practical guidance and tools to help you navigate this challenge and to help you get the best out of your trustees, staff or volunteers. It has been developed with the complexities of chairing a smaller organisation (with an annual income of under £1 million) in mind; such as working with a small number of trustees, the executive role often being in a part-time or voluntary capacity and individuals often having both operational and governance roles. You will have the opportunity to share learning with Chairs of other smaller organisations.

By the end of this workshop, you will:
  • Understand what will help you get the best from your trustees and work effectively with key individuals such as a Vice-Chair, Treasurer, CEO or operational lead
  • Be more confident in dealing with difficult dynamics, managing conflict effectively
  • Have practical tools to help you manage boundaries between operations and governance
  • Gain insight and top tips from other Chairs of smaller organisations
