Holding Friends Accountable (New) - Spring Education Conference 2018

No one follows through on their commitments every time, but what is it that makes us want to? Co-op culture can encourage or discourage accountability. Come find out how friends and neighbours can hold each other accountable, without naming and shaming.

In this workshop you will learn what co-op traits enhance and hurt accountability. Also find out what qualities and skills we personally need to create positive results, and what conversational structures will facilitate our goals.

Spoiler alert: tracking down the guilty is not an option on the table in this workshop.

Workshop Facilitator: Larry Birckhead

In addition to his experience on the board of directors, maintenance committee, and membership committee at his own co-op, Marine Court, he has applied his organization development capacities to Co-operative Housing Federation of BC’s (CHF BC’s) Education Program since 2008 offering a range of workshops, as well as expertise in board coaching and trouble-shooting.
