Managing the Governance Speed Bump
Conflict is About Capital. Recognize this conflict is related to Co-op�s capital needs;
- Communicate with members & patrons about Co-op�s capital needs.
- Turn the investment of members & patrons in your Co-op into a valuable asset on their own balance sheet. Cash today or capital gain tomorrow?
Defend the Co-op. Recognize that directors must lead by defending the legitimate needs of the Co-op. If directors defend the Co-op, the employees will too.
