You’re not going to want to wait!  My new book launches June 15th!

Effective boards matter! But merely declaring it so doesn’t help you achieve the board functioning level you know your nonprofit needs and deserves.

Until relatively recently, we haven’t had research to help nonprofit executives and board members know how to go about improving the board—how to catalyze it to “get better.”  I did some research and identified three critical success factors for effective board development.

Those are: a nudge, the board chair, and intention. One executive director, Carlos, found doing a self-assessment was the nudge for his board. In Claudia’s case, her board chair was instrumental because he embraced the changes that were needed and led other board members to do the same. Others I interviewed repeatedly mentioned intentionality when describing what they experienced as essential for positive board change.

Find out more about how boards truly “get better.” Get ready to pre-order your e-book copy of Love Your Board! The Executive Directors’ Guide to Discovering the Sources of Board Troubles and What to do About Them. (If you’re reading this after the launch date, go grab your copy!)

All the best!
