Leading Together

David Chojnacki & Rick Detwiler

The challenge of leading an international School Board is great in “normal” times: high turnover of trustees, Board structures that sometimes restrict rather than enhance Board performance, the ongoing need for sustained Board development, finding the time to govern, and, of course, the volatile environment our international schools cope with. Now, with the added uncertainties of COVID-19, the challenge to the Chair and Head to lead their Boards is even greater. Offered at no cost to NESA Member and Affiliate Schools.
