Is your board underwhelming in its leadership?

There is an overwhelming amount of effort applied toward achieving the principles of good governance and a surprisingly equal measure of disappointment in board outcomes.

Three celebrated modes of governance: a proven approach

This sentiment and many other sector questions prompted Chait, Ryan and Taylor to write Governance as Leadership, which introduced a ground-breaking trimodal approach to board governance in fiduciary, strategic and generative spheres.

High-performing boards: applications and examples

The subject of this interview, The Practitioner's Guide to Governance as Leadership, is Cathy Trower's how-to edition, which expands on Governance as Leadership's influential work with a wealth of examples of high-performing nonprofit boards as well as insightful tools and guidance on how to successfully operate equally in these three celebrated modes.
