Unity Consulting is again organizing two-hour virtual sessions to cover the basics of policy-based governance. Join another board on Zoom to:
Connect new and returning trustees to your board's commitments.
Create a shared vocabulary and shared understanding of your board's governance purpose and practice.
Connect board-to-board with other congregations working in this system. Learn from Unity Consulting and each other how to leverage the tools of this system to govern effectively and with prophetic imagination.
Ideal for boards already using the system, these sessions are also a great way for boards exploring this system's possibilities to learn more about how it works. Far less expensive than bringing a consultant on-site, you get access to Unity Consulting's experience with congregations all over the country, plus the insights of fellow congregational leaders.
Topics we'll cover include:
Unity Consulting's Nested Bowls metaphor for the board's governance foundation of values, mission, and ends, grounded in the voice of the board's sources of authority and accountability.
The key distinction between ends and means and how knowing the difference can liberate and empower leadership throughout the congregation.
How the board exercises governance oversight and fulfills its fiduciary responsibilities through monitoring its policies, particularly limitations policies.
The role of prophetic imagination in governance.
