Many boards endure one or more board members who arrive at a meeting unprepared or like to dominate the discussion with their own opinions and comments. In these cases, it is challenging for the Board Chair to make sure the meeting is not hijacked and to ensure that all board members have the opportunity to be heard while keeping the conversation on topic. A number of strategies can help a Chair in this situation. This webinar will focus on one such strategy–creating and enforcing ground rules for your board. This deceptively simple practice can help board meetings be more engaging, limit bad board member behavior, and most importantly, help your school better live its mission.
During the hour webinar, Dave Michelman will review what board groundrules are, how to create them, and how to employ them during (and if need be, after) the meeting.
