Building an Exemplary Board: Strengthening Mission Clarity Through Member Transparency & Accountability
Clarity, sequencing and implementation are the keys to building just about anything. When it comes to building a board, these can often go awry for a variety of reasons. Learning to establish the core mission of organization and align a board and staff around that vision is essential to overcoming the myriad of obstacles, hurdles and ethical conundrums that every board faces, regardless of industry.
Building an Exemplary Board details the action steps, sequencing and evaluation methods necessary to elevate organizations to a place where they’re working at full capacity and utilizing their resources in the most effective ways possible. The presentation typically includes three distinct areas of focus:
- What Does An Exemplary Board Do? Expectations, Roles, Onboarding, Engagement and Skill Matches & Assessments
- How Does An Exemplary Board Operate? Transparency, Accountability, Tough Questions, Communication, Trust, Change Management
- Who Makes An Exemplary Board Member? Recruiting, Evaluating, Mission Commitment, Filling the Gaps
Building an Exemplary Board is a process with its fair share of ups, downs, triumphs, missed moments and opportunities for growth. Learning to spot each of these and develop effective methods of management that support and enhance the organization’s mission and vision is what this program is all about.
