Fixing Your Broken Board


1. How to know when it’s time for your board to take a new direction

2. What to do first, second and third to give your board its best prospects for recovery, rebirth and results

3. How to apply principles and practices of high-performing organizations to your board’s climb to noticeable and noteworthy improvement

Most non-profit boards start life with the best of intentions, often without proper guidance and planning. Left to their own devices, poorly crafted board structure and process can grow increasingly ineffective, causing issues with strategy, process and people. When your standard of excellence is a handful of board members with perfect attendance, you sense the many missed opportunities all around you and realize you’re no longer fulfilling your purpose for existence. That’s when it’s time to get back to basics. In this session, we’ll look at the symptoms signaling that your board is headed in the wrong direction, how and when to stop, drop and roll and the steps you’ll need to begin again more intelligently.
