Raising your board performance
Does your board just not get it? How do you get your board members to think as visionaries and work together? This ideal board is hard to find but can be fostered.
Cathy Trower, author of The Practitioner’s Guide to Governance as Leadership: Building High-Performing Nonprofit Boards, offers ways to cover three modes with your board: fiduciary, strategic and generative. If a board can address all these areas, it will be high-functioning and will get it.
