What We Offer
Over the years, our team has developed a catalog of board experiences to be shared in the development and ongoing support of strong boards. Here are just a few of our guiding principles in working with your board:
- Good boards insist on accountability – their own.
- Board seats should be filled according to needs, not personalities or friendships.
- Board members have responsibilities that are critical to your success: They should be interviewed as if you were filling an important leadership position- because you are!
- Board members must adhere to their duty of Loyalty (Your organization’s needs before their own as a board member), Care (Ensuring you have the necessary funding, strategy, and legal compliance to succeed), and Obedience (Acting as a board unit and not as a single renegade member).
- Board members challenge the organization’s thinking.
- Board members see the value by being on the board.
- The Board Chair and Executive Director partnership is the most important and productive relationship in the whole nonprofit.
Our board development programs are specifically tailored to your needs. We will work with you to assess board strengths and gaps and then determine where we can be of most value, with the goal of overall improvement and satisfaction: to you, to the board, and to your community.
