Power dynamics can really get in the way when you are trying to build a healthy, strong organization. If family foundations and their grantee partners don’t see eye to eye, or if junior members of the family pose challenges to their board leaders or elders, the back-and-forth struggle isn’t just uncomfortable; it can undermine the organizational stability and compromise impact. But there are practical, effective solutions for this struggle. In this session featuring Dr. Miki Kashtan, Lead Collaboration Consultant at the Center for Efficient Collaboration, participants will learn both concrete tools and out-of-the-box solutions for bridging power differences and collaborating more effectively. Miki will be joined by Cindy Mercer, co-founder of the Planet Heritage Foundation, who will share her own experiences with collaboration and power differences in philanthropy.
