Leadership For A New Era
Nonprofits today are faced with unprecedented challenges, and yet we continue to approach board leadership using concepts from thirty years ago.
As our organizations enter into new territory, so our boards need to lead differently – yet we continue to put our efforts into getting the structure ‘right’. But there is no magical number of board members or committees, or use of Robert’s Rules of Order or Consent agendas, that will transform our boards into the strategic thinkers or powerful decision makers they need to be. Instead, structure must be seen as only the foundation – and board behavior and dynamics approached in a new way – to lead effectively into the future.
