We have all experienced the strain of conflicting personalities that can derail meetings and overtake effective (and sometimes healthy) communication. Meeting management is a key way to combat this difficult challenge, while everyone still feels heard and understood. Understanding the personality and leadership dynamics is the baseline for how to ensure effective communication, whether among board members or senior staff. There is an art to moderating (or chairing) a meeting - and that job starts well before the meeting actually occurs.

Please join Dustin Johnson for step-by-step guidance on planning and facilitating effective senior leadership meetings within a nonprofit environment. Framed within an organizational structure specific to nonprofit organizations, Dustin will review proven systems that encourage the participation not just of the executive director but of all of your management staff.
