Enthusiastic, dedicated and full Board involvement is essential for success fundraising. Board members may be nervous about fundraising – not because they cannot do it, but because they didn’t hear about it during recruitment, never learned how to do it and think they will make enemies of their friends if they ask. Participants in this webinar will review best practice board roles and responsibilities, examine a framework for assessing the type(s) of resistance the organization must address, and then use the framework to draft an action plan to address and overcome the resistance!
- Review and discuss the levels of Board member knowledge, skill and engagement.
- Assess the types to resistance Board members are demonstrating using the model of Technical and Adaptive Challenges developed by Ron Heifitz, of the John F Kennedy School of Leadership at Harvard University
- Using the model, develop a preliminary action plan for acknowledging the issue(s) and mapping out an action plan to replace the resistance with engagement and action.
