Advanced Board Skills: Choosing Collaboration & Clarity Over Chaos
Christy Monson, Local Government Law Group
All over the world, citizens are shaking their heads as their leaders resort to childish squabbling, name-calling, and deflection instead of leading with honesty, integrity, honor and respect. In this one-hour session, we will discuss why this type of misbehavior has such a strong pull on modern-day elected officials; how to recognize when an honest disagreement is turning into chaotic conflict; how your board can plan for, address, and honor differences of opinion without compromising ideals; and what you can do when disagreement turns ugly and becomes detrimental to your entire community.
