Webinar: The Executive Director Performance Review: The Pinnacle for Cultivating Talent to Lead a Community Cause

Participate in this webinar from the comfort of your desk!

Thursday, January 27, 2022 (3:00 PM - 4:30 PM) (EST)
Event Details
  • How is management adapting to the changing dynamics of creating community impact in partnership with a large group of diverse stakeholders and employees?

  • How important is talent development, recognition, and retention in a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization?
  • How does succession planning become a safe space for regular conversation?

  • When does a performance review become a political process and popularity contest for an employee?

Without question, how a community impact organization chooses to evaluate its most senior staff professional tells the entire story about how it values people and their contributions to the cause. It also magnifies to what degree the organization is serious about advancing its cause using clearly articulated plans or methodologies with good leadership

When the executive performance review is viewed as the culmination of "A Culture of Accountability" it recognizes the outcomes of board and organizational assessments to help inform a fair executive review.

This 90-minute session will talk about how the Executive Performance Review sets a standard for all other reviews of the talent at work for a cause. It will also feature a guest speaker who recently completed an executive performance review process.

Learning Outcomes:

You will leave this course ready to:

  • Facilitate a thoughtful executive performance review based on the outcomes of other evaluations and fair input
  • Coordinate an evaluation process that will result in specific discussions about an annual leadership plan, executive retention, professional recognition, and leadership succession
  • Recognize the pitfalls of an executive review process that can unintentionally inhibit positive board and executive director relationships

Who Should Attend: Executive leaders of community impact organizations, board members, evaluation consultants and human resource professionals, and volunteers

Offered by our partner, Washington Nonprofits
