Increasing Influence and Building Board Consensus (BLC #952.1)
1-1/2 Skill Builder Credits

Electric cooperative boards face new challenges in finance, technology, and energy transition while navigating shifting population demographics. This course provides directors with the skills necessary to successfully meet these complex challenges. Through group discussion and case studies, participants will learn negotiation techniques, how to navigate difficult power asymmetries, establishing influence, and the importance of team diversity in avoiding group think.

Key topics:
  • Navigating power asymmetries on a team and building your authority.
  • Exploring demographic and cognitive diversity in teams and recruiting for diversity.
  • Building consensus through interest-based negotiation.
  • Recognize and avoid groupthink in the boardroom.
