Create a Winning Board Culture Without Losing to Politics

60-Minute Education Session

Saturday, April 2, 3:00pm-4:00pm PT

Room 28B

With neighbors shouting down neighbors in board discussions and elections turning into political battlefields, boardroom culture is coming front and center. What are the essential elements for developing a culture of good governance? What role does communication play in establishing and meeting community expectations? How do ethical considerations come into play in board interactions? Developing a tone of respectful communication both inside and outside the boardroom is increasingly difficult, yet increasingly essential. The board must define and convey standards for their own interactions and meet these expectations in order to model and create a culture of good governance in the community. We’ll explore practical tactics to help board members navigate current challenges and create positive change in their board rooms and beyond.

Leading with Purpose: Re-Connecting with Your Why

30-Minute Study Break Session

Sunday, April 3, 2:00pm - 2:30pm PT

Hall 1

Purposeful leadership can be challenging even in the best of times. The pandemic as well as political and cultural conflicts have created new demands on systems and processes, putting governance under a microscope. Relief has been intermittent, and burnout is real. Yet communities seek guidance. When faced with unsettling or novel circumstances, people look toward those who lead with purpose, clearly aligning their values with words and actions. You may have already done some work in articulating your organization’s vision, you may need practical steps to realign your work and your personal purpose, or you may be new to these efforts. Wherever you are in the journey, your purpose, vision, and actions are needed. When you lead with purpose, it’s easier not only to achieve the goals you set for yourself and your community, but to bring others into your circle, to exponentially increase the power of your efforts and achieve more satisfying and impactful results. In this session, participants will receive a copy of the Leading with Purpose workbook. We’ll explore a few key activities you can do to understand and reconnect with your “why”, identify your challenges, and create a roadmap to guide yourself and others in the service of shaping public education and community transformation.
