Working with Condo Boards that Want to Manage

Article Summary: 

The blog post discusses how to work with condo boards that want to manage the day-to-day affairs of the corporation, often to the point of micro-managing the activities of the property manager. Two main reasons for this behavior are a lack of trust or a desire to give back to the community. Building trust with the board members and recognizing their need to give back can help to overcome this issue. The property manager should prepare to objectively discuss the challenges of micro-management and start small by asking for the board's support in trusting them to accomplish certain tasks. Mutual successes can be shared, and volunteer efforts can be focused on specific goals to help the property manager accomplish more. The property manager can also explain why certain tasks, like communication with trades, are important to be the manager's responsibility and may negatively impact the corporation's finances if done directly by the board. Exploring community initiatives can also benefit the owners in the condominium.
