Chairing is a learned skill


As the board chair you have the single largest impact on the success or failure of the meeting. When you know what you are doing, things go well. When you don't, it can be a disaster.
But, most board chairs receive little to no training on how to run formal meetings using Robert's Rules of Order, and becoming a confident, competent chairperson is a skill that has to be learned.


Chair a Meeting With Confidence is a one of a kind course that will teach you how to successfully manage both the "people" and "process" sides of the meeting so that you feel more confident and competent when chairing meetings that use Robert's Rules of Order.
This training will not only help you become an expert in the decision making "process" (Robert's Rules) it will also set you up for success when dealing with the "people" in your meetings, which many time is the trickiest part of being a chair. Because after all, being able to manage both the "people" and "process" sides is crucial to being a successful chairperson.
