Chair with Intention™ | November 3-4, 2022 (Toronto)

As goes the chair, so goes the board – its dynamics, its performance, its effectiveness. Leadership is a board imperative. Organizational success demands that boards not only develop the leadership they need today, but also build the leadership of tomorrow.

Chair with IntentionTM is our 1.5-day course for current and incoming chairs. Participants network with peers facing similar issues to develop their chairship - the skills, practices and approaches that differentiate board leaders from meeting administrators.
