Stress Management for Directors

How to thrive in the face of overload, uncertainty, and politicised environments

Better Boards is pleased to present "Stress Management for Directors" in partnership with Nigel Donovan, Executive Coach @ Donovan Ataraxy.

Board directors at NFPs have a lot to contend with. And at times it can feel overwhelming.

Many directors serve because of their personal commitment to the NFPs mission. At the same time, they have busy work lives and are juggling work-life balance.

Then there are the board challenges:

  • Post Covid many NFPs are under financial pressure.
  • The changing nature of board obligations from what you knew to what you should know
  • The sheer volume of board papers to digest – or lack thereof
  • A lack of clarity about the role of board vs management.

In this webinar, Nigel will explain how stress affects the brain, causing isolation, communication difficulties, and reduced problem-solving abilities. He’ll then share strategies to help shift mindsets, leading to increased confidence, clarity, and connection, more efficient problem solving, and a better work-life balance.
