CNM’s Governance Catalyst is an innovative and unique opportunity to enhance the relationship between executive directors and board chairs. Pairs will be chosen from a competitive application process to participate in an intensive, four-part series that is designed to improve communication and problem-solving and help their organizations achieve new levels of success in governance and mission delivery.
The four-part series begins with three customized workshops, completed alongside the selected cohort participants. The workshop subjects are designed to build on one another for maximum impact. Fieldwork activities will be assigned between sessions.
Following the group cohort experience, each organization will receive eight hours of consulting to integrate these new practices within their respective boards and provide support on organization-specific issues. Depending on your organization’s needs, these services could include a site visit, executive coaching, governance toolkits, a board retreat, meeting facilitation, or other integration strategies.
Successful applicants to this catalyst will be required to contribute $175 per agency, just 10% of the total value for all services included. The remaining costs will be funded by the J.D. Elliott Leadership Development Fund.
