“Over three decades as a nonprofit chief executive, few things have been more critical to success than that of a well-functioning and strategically powerful board. Too often, a board of directors has challenges that can only be resolved by doing the hard work of identifying and then solving its weaknesses. In her book, Mary Hiland does a masterful job guiding the chief executive to help board members identify telltale symptoms and follow them to the problem’s root causes. Having taken this journey together, they are then guided along the path toward resolution. Love Your Board! is for any executive director/CEO who wants to help their board achieve its full potential.”

“I loved this book! It is easy to follow, warm, and congenial. It is evidence-based, and the examples illustrate and move the reader through the processes Mary recommends. The tree metaphor made the book feel like the advice and information given is organic and could become part of the fabric of an organization. I highly recommend it to all executive directors.”
