Webinar Series: Good Governance Basics
In February 2011, Unity Consulting offered four workshops in a webinar track on congregational governance. Although each 1.25-hour webinar stands alone effectively, taken together they build a complete package of congregational governance skills for any congregation, operating under any governance system.
Webinar 1: Principles of Good Governance
This webinar introduces participants to the principles that make boards in any governance system effective, and connects those principles to progressive religious ideals. Sign Up for Access
Webinar 2: Foundations of Good Governance: The Nested Bowls of Values, Mission and Ends
In this webinar, we explore the foundation of good governance: answering the values, mission and ends questions. We also look at how to engage in deep and meaningful conversation with the people who need to inform the answers to those questions. Sign Up for Access
Webinar 3: Foundations of Good Governance: Role Clarity for Visionary and Operational Leadership
In this webinar, we talk about the difference between the visionary and operational leadership of a congregation, why that difference matters, and how to effectively sustain role clarity in a governance system. Sign Up for Access
Webinar 4: The Leadership Cycle in the Mission-Focused Congregation
This webinar brings the whole series together. In it, we talk about how the visionary and operational leadership in a congregation interact using the principles of good governance to ensure the congregation advances its mission while honoring its values. Sign Up for Access
Cost: $25 per webinar. Please note: the fee establishes one account. Please do not share your account information with others, but we encourage you to gather others in your congregation to view the webinar with you.
