The board chair and executive director relationship can either be one of close partnership or one filled with frustration. I’ll never forget an early executive director experience I had. I knew the board chair and I both had the organization’s best interests at heart, yet we couldn’t seem to agree on strategy or priorities. I wish I would have known then what I know now.
Improved mission re-alignment, board engagement, financial position, and organizational stability are just some of the results you can expect, setting the stage to build capacity.
At Xanthus Consulting, I can help with board governance in the following ways:
- Board development
- Retreat and meeting facilitation
- Succession planning
- Strategic visioning
