Getting Management Right

Full-Day Workshop (MG-1)

Co-op management is both a challenging and rewarding experience, where effective day-to-day management of operations determines the success of the co-op. A key component of having sound management is the Board’s role to manage personnel including co-op staff and external contractors.

In order to keep good staff, co-op Boards need to have a solid understanding of what makes a positive employer-employee relationship. This management workshop will equip you with the knowledge of principles and practice to help ensure the successful management of your co-op.

This workshop covers the following:

  • governance vs. management in your co-op
  • overview of the five “Core Management Standards”
  • the interdependent roles of managers and directors
  • working with the board to ensure principled leadership
  • recruitment and selection of employees
  • managing, motivating and evaluating staff
  • the tendering process: scope of work, tendering call/award and managing the project
