Organizations have needs which board members can help facilitate through leveraging their relationships to meet those needs. That requires education, understanding, and trust. In successful nonprofit organizations, it is essential to have a strong and respectful partnership between the Board, the CEO, and the staff. A well-crafted strategic plan helps to create shared goals and a sense of ownership and the critical question of “what’s next” as part of the planning process.
During this workshop, participants will examine the strongest tools needed to create the perfect board and staff relationship based on shared respect and equity, ensuring staff and board each have what they need to be successful in the workplace to achieve the desired outcomes. Through case studies, we will examine examples of how staff can work with board members to effectively help them leverage their relationships to accomplish shared organization needs and goals.
