Viewer Favorite—Undated & Revised

The careful nurturing of a board member, whether for-profit or nonprofit, is critical. The pay-off of a robust orientation process is an informed and fully participating board director. The following are very similar occurrences in both for-profit and nonprofit boards:

The CEO of a transportation firm agrees to become a board director of a firm developing computer programs. He has risen through the transportation ranks with a financial background, but he knows little about the dynamics of the computer industry.

A finance professor is asked to serve on the board of a nonprofit school serving handicapped children. She has no children of her own and has never had any contact with handicapped children, social workers or teachers serving handicapped children. (more…)

Do any of these describe you or your nonprofit board members?

·         Don’t have a way to effectively measure “client impact.”

·         Must build CEO/board fundraising capacity.

·         Have trustees who “micromanage” management.

·         Never get to strategic discussions. Focus is strictly operations.

·         Need a broad framework that separates policy & strategy development from operational activities.

·         Have a board/staff relationship that isn’t built on trust.

·         Need task forces that deliver more effective, timely results.
