Leading Teams: Governance for Indigenous Councils and Boards

Indigenous Leadership Webinar

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

Indigenous leaders, managers, and directors are faced with increasingly complex issues, accelerated change, and new ways of doing business.

They are also finding new and creative ways to move beyond standard corporate models of governance to embrace culturally grounded models of Indigenous governance.

This program will explore the structure and management of a governing body for maximum efficiency and effectiveness, with a particular focus on building solid foundations for Indigenous governance.

Participants will come away with tools to understand their leadership style in order to strengthen governance foundations, facilitate new processes, run more productive meetings, and be more effective decision-makers.
