I just gave two sessions on COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP at the Franklin University Symposium on Leadership.
Almost every ‘COMMUNITY LEADER’ I know is engaged on some BOARD for their church, school, United Way, social service agency, whatever.
Special Note: I led off my session on COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP by simply writing this on a flip chart:
I am always AMAZED… STUNNED… OVERWHELMED… that there does not seem to be a SINGLE ‘NOT FOR PROFIT‘ that has figured out the ROLE and RESPONSIBILITY of the BOARD!!!
I have done a considerable amount of work with colleges, large national associations, almost every Catholic secondary school in America (at least that’s what it seems like), the leaders and national models in cancer research, international education, homelessness, healthcare, museums and much more.
Every single one of these groups… along with pretty much every organization who has attended our workshops or training camps… has a HUGE PROBLEM with this whole BOARD ROLE & RESPONSIBILITY.
You can share this WOW E-Mail with your team, board members and other community leaders.
I’ve also provided stand-alone one-pagers to go deeper on each of these.
