Knee-jerk reactions! Cowering! Over the top appeasement! Emotional decision making! These are just some of the natural, human reactions to unexpected strife and bad news. As the board of a startup food co-op, there’s a good chance that you won’t get all the way to doors open without some surprises of the unpleasant variety. How do you as a board prepare to respond well as leaders to these tough moments? What should we do first when unexpected tough times hit? In this workshop we’ll take a look at some real life startup scenarios and talk about what to do first, how to communicate, and how to move beyond these tough moments cooperatively.
