Date Published/Updated: 
Friday, September 16, 2016

In a vibrant not-for-profit organization, the board chair and executive director are each other’s biggest fans and greatest critics.

Three critical markers reflect the health of this relationship: an openness to provide and receive constructive feedback; decision-making driven by mutual respect, trust and empathy; and a shared orientation toward tackling mission-critical work.

This updated Vantage Point resource, inspired by the findings of Mary Hiland’s 2008 article, The Board Chair-Executive Director Relationship, provides a structured way of gauging the current vitality of your Board Chair-Executive Director relationship, and opportunities to identify the crucial steps to strengthen and improve your partnership.
