Speaker: Susan Hasty – According to a report from The Bridgespan Group, less than 20% nonprofit executives believe their executive teams focus on the right work, and only 25% feel their CEO effectively addresses team dynamics and performance challenges.
At the heart of how leaders can create a better structure lies in how commitments are defined and negotiated. Effectively asking for and ensuring commitment is not a part of most peoples DNA in our society. It holds the potential for engaging in difficult conversations.
That’s because the primary obstacle is invisible: the internal resistance that all human beings experience, often unconsciously, when they’re requesting others to make.
Redesigning the leadership model can reveal opportunities to increase efficiency and balance workload. This presentation will provide a a step by step process leadership teams can use to organize themselves to lead collaboratively and improve the quality of volunteer commitment and better manage resources.
