Governance and Leadership Virtual Seminar: Managing Change

Beyond the technical practices of board service, you have the need to be adaptive to changes. Once boards understand the change management lifecycle, you can have productive conversations and a clear decision-making process to move your work forward. A healthy tolerance for change and willingness to be adaptive in your approach will help your board have an outsized impact. By the end of this module participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the change management lifecycle a board must consider throughout transitions in leadership or foundation practice
  • Lean how the board chair has a key role in effective board and foundation practice.

Complement your learning with a copy of the Trustee Handbook: Essentials for Effective Foundation Board Members.
