Board Facilitation & Engagement

Board chairs provide critical leadership through meeting facilitation and agenda setting. As facilitators, chairs navigate their own relationships with the executive and other board members, as well as relationships between board members. Board chairs also resolve conflicts; address challenges; and set the stage for strategic conversations. Strong meeting facilitation can help a board of directors have the right conversations, at the right level, and strengthen or preserve board members’ ability to provide engaged leadership. This e-study explores the role of board chair as facilitator in real board situations.
