Join Dottie Schindlinger, VP of Thought Leadership for Diligent Corporation for this session designed to help your community college board think differently. This session provides you with an overview of:
- Ways to re-frame problems and consider issues from multiple perspectives simultaneously
- “Generative thinking” – which can lead to a host of creative/better outcomes to challenging situations
- Opportunities for robust discussion in board meetings – allowing space for board members to be curious, intrigued, and highly engaged
- Ways to leverage governance management software tools like BoardDocs to support board engagement and strategic decision making
Dottie will provide a brief overview of “generative governance” first introduced in Governance as Leadership: Reframing the Work of Nonprofit Boards, (2005, Wiley, Chait, Ryan, & Taylor) which describes how high-performing boards find ways to serve as the organization’s “sense-makers.” These “generative” boards first deciding the priority and meaning of the challenges they face – before diving right into problem-solving. Taking this approach yields incredible results. When boards take this approach in combination with the right technology tools, they greatly improve the quality (and quantity) of board discussions, leading to greater insight and generating better decisions.
