Executive Director Synergy Leadership Circle- Building a Better Board 

In partnership with Think Good Leadership, the Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley is pleased to share our dates for our winter/spring program for Synergy Leadership Circles for Executive Directors. 

Synergy Leadership Circles provide nonprofit leaders with a safe space to build their leadership capacity and mindset with the support of their peers and a trained facilitator so that leaders are free to discuss the unique challenges and experiences of serving as nonprofit leaders. Our current program details are: 

Building a Better Board: Peer Coaching Circles for Executive Director’s

Let’s face it…no one prepares nonprofit professionals for working with Boards. It is a unique partnership. One that requires mutually aligned expectations and crucial conversations.

The Build a Better Board Peer Coaching Circle for Executive Director’s brings nonprofit leaders together in a safe place to share strategies for building exemplary partnerships with their Boards.

Sessions will be facilitated by Deb Cummins Stellato, President of Think Good Leadership and Karen Smith, CEO of Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley. Each monthly session will start with a quick overview of best practices on a specific topic area. Participants will be encouraged to get feedback from peers on specific, current challenges. A closed Facebook group will be created for continuous learning between sessions.

Peer Coaching Circles provide participants with opportunities to:

  • Build the bonds of a group development program.

  • Turn their time together into a community of practice.

  • Providing a “safe” space for sharing results and requesting support.

Topics include:

  • Defining healthy boundaries/ working with difficult people

  • Leveraging your board / ensuring you get what you need

  • Making meetings work for everyone

  • Planning for sustainable success

  • Introducing change into your organization
