GovernWell: Effective chairing for governors module, Newcastle
Date 20 November 2019
Foundation trust governors attend and often chair a variety of meetings/groups, which when chaired and conducted well, help trusts to achieve their objectives in a more timely way. By introducing some relatively simple changes to the way governors plan, structure and manage meetings, significant gains and benefits can be achieved for patients and service users.
What will governors gain?
- An opportunity to explore good practice in the chairing of meetings and common problems areas
- An understanding of the key elements of effective chairing including being clear about the purpose of your forum, getting the right membership, agenda setting, effective papers and creating a safe inclusive environment to allow appropriate debate and decision making
- An opportunity to develop skills in summarising discussions and dealing with difficult behaviour
