Executive Director: Empowering Your Board

You are here


Steer your board to better performance.

The relationship between the board and the executive director is critical to organizational success. Keeping your board focused on governance and out of operations is a key challenge that can strain this relationship. If you can effectively educate and engage your board members to set direction versus manage operations, you can lead your board to govern.
