Building a Rock-Solid Partnership With Your Board


High-impact governing boards that make a real difference – setting clear strategic targets, resolving high-stakes issues, committing resources to major change initiatives – are one of the preeminent keys to nonprofit success in these challenging times. But no nonprofit board can go it alone in providing high-impact leadership. Governing is truly a team sport, and nonprofits that thrive and grow in today’s world are led by a cohesive “Strategic Governing Team” consisting of the board and its CEO. Therefore, building and maintaining a rock-solid board-CEO partnership that is close, positive, and enduring is a critical step toward the kind of high-impact governing capacity that the times demand.

The Building a Rock-Solid Partnership With Your Board Webinar will provide participants with detailed, practical, thoroughly-tested guidance for building the kind of close, positive, and productive board-CEO partnership that these changing, challenging times demand. There’s nothing theoretical about this webinar; nor is it about “touchy-feely” team building techniques. It is based on the real-life experience of many nonprofits that have succeeded in putting strong, enduring Strategic Governing Teams in place, and have, as a result, strengthened their capacity to thrive and grow in a challenging world. Special attention will be paid to the highly successful High-Impact Governing Initiative of the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
