For a nonprofit, nothing is more important than a strong and focused board.
So, what makes a great board great? Is it diligence to the mission, a hyper-focused eye on fundraising, networks and connections, or a group of people that smile and stay out of the way?
The answer is – all of the above and more! Are you a Board Chair and you see the Board you guide and direct losing focus and clarity? Are you an Executive Director wondering what the point of the monthly meetings is all about? Are you a Board Member struggling to find their place within a mission you are passionate about?
Education, expectations, execution and effectiveness or accountability.
Focus on your preferred reality – that is about you. Do not focus on what you do not want because you will ultimately bring that about.
