Making Committee Work the Best Part of Your Job
Building and maintaining an engaged and competent committee is key for organizational sustainability and vitality. This interactive workshop will help pros get ready for the next fiscal year by emphasizing the role professionals play in building, guiding, and engaging effective committees. Professionals will leave the workshop with increased confidence and competence in how to facilitate committee decision making experiences that bring out the best in their leadership and set up the professional and the committee for a positive and productive year.
During this workshop, we will address the following the questions:
1. What is the essence of committee work and what is the prework the professional needs to do in order to set up the committee for success?
2. What does the professional need their committee to know, feel, and do and how does the professional facilitate this with their lay chair?
3. What tools might professionals use to set up expectations for the year and to create clarity of purpose for our lay leaders?
