What It Really Means to Be an Executive Director offered by SCF
Move from being the one that does it to the one that facilitates it
As an executive director, how can you move from being the one that does it all to the one that facilitates it all happening? That’s the question we’ll address during this interactive workshop led by Tamela Spicer. You will learn how to move out of the role of chief hero that does it all and into the role of chief host, facilitating the success of your entire team — staff, volunteers, and the board.
Key concepts will include:
- Delegating with care
- Managing board relations
- Shifting from triage focus to strategic planning
*Note: This event is for organizations serving the Spartanburg County area*
