Foresight is the Future of Governing


Who is attending to your association's future?

The future will not take care of itself, so this is one of the most important questions that board presiding officers and chief staff executives must answer in the coming months. And here's another one: will your association's board continue to orient its work toward what directors think they know from the past, or will they fully embrace the duty of foresight and focus their attention on pursuing intentional learning with the future?

Based on the forthcoming eBook, Foresight is The Future of Governing: Building Thrivable Boards, Stakeholders and Systems for the 21st Century, this provocative webinar will explore why boards are doing the wrong work today and why foresight is the future of governing for boards that want to strengthen their performance and function as capable future-ready stewards for their organizations.

This webinar will consider the following learning questions:
  • Why should association board presiding officers and chief staff executives treat governing as a design opportunity?
  • What is the relationship among stewardship, governing and foresight?
  • How can associations embrace a future-ready approach to the work of governing?
