CEO Trustee Workshop - Day 2

Are you waiting for things to return to normal in your organization? Sorry. Leadership will require new skills tailored to an environment of urgency, high stakes, and uncertainty—even after the current economic crisis is over. The CEO-Trustee workshop lead by Marty Linsky, CLA co-Founder and Harvard Kennedy School faculty, will introduce participants to “adaptive leadership” where foundation leaders will learn how to foster adaptation, embrace disequilibrium, and generate leadership. The workshop will provide a framework for bringing change back to your foundation. It will provide practical applications on how to adapt and thrive in challenging environments. This must-attend event will offer CEOs and trustees opportunities to engage in stimulating learning exchanges with peers. Space is limited, so register early to join foundation leaders from across the nation for two days of peer learning, in-depth discussions, and networking.
