At the core of effective nonprofit organizations is a healthy partnership between lay and professional/rabbinic leaders. When things work well, magic can happen. If the relationship is unhealthy, both lay leaders and their professional/rabbinic partners become disaffected and often walk away from the enterprise they care so deeply about.
In this workshop, executive coach, nonprofit CEO and Jewish communal leader Hal Lewis will explore the key components of healthy relations between nonprofit management and governance. We’ll discuss key roles and responsibilities, how to have difficult conversations, how to develop a meaningful communication strategy, and creating a context in which to manage conflict.
