Description
 
Who is Robert and why do we still follow his rules anyway? This one-of-a-kind book challenges nonprofit leaders (and anyone who runs meetings) to retire Robert's Rules of Order and adopt a simpler, friendlier, and more effective method for conducting meetings-Roberta's Rules of Order. Using traditional sailing ships as a metaphor, meetings and governance expert Alice Collier Cochran helps groups make the journey from the "shore" that represents the culture of Robert's Rules-procedural formality, debate, simple majority rule-to the opposite "shore" of Roberta's Rules-informality, dialogue, and decision-making options. In doing so, she helps them to conduct friendlier, more effective meetings and to take the first step toward creating flexible, democratic organizations. Cochran outlines practical principles for effective meetings and governance. She shows leaders a new way to run effective meetings, improve the way their organizations are governed, and more successfully achieve their mission and goals.
