Better Boards is pleased to present "Dealing with Difficult Directors in the NFP Boardroom" in partnership with Marianne Hynes, Co-Founder & Director @ PsychSafety Solutions.

Being a board member of a not-for-profit can be a rewarding experience, working with fellow members who are passionate and mission-aligned. But in any work environment, you will likely come across members who are challenging to work with and who make the experience and the delivery of outcomes difficult.

If you are experiencing dominant voices while others remain silent, intimidation or a member not fulfilling their responsibilities, then this session is for you.

In this session, Marianne will touch on:

  • emotional intelligence in the boardroom
  • understanding dysfunctional director personalities
  • building a psychologically safe boardroom
  • strategies for managing difficult directors
