Power sharing needs to begin at ALL levels before you can consider creating a shared executive leadership structure. This workshop will introduce attendees to the process currently ongoing at the Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York to create a new executive leadership structure that aligns with the organization’s values.

Participants will walk away with:

  • An introduction to functional power sharing at all management and co-working levels as a tool for change.
  • Language to begin conversations about shared leadership with all stakeholders within their organization.
  • Ideas about how to collaborate between Staff and Board.
