development is a catch all phrase capturing the essence of the
relationship between a for-impact boards governance style
and structure, and the constituents it represents. Does that relationship
need work? Is it strong? How do board members relate to the organizations
executive? How well aligned is the boards strategic vision
with the current and emerging community needs? The list goes on.
But one thing is for sure: success lies not in the questions,
per se, but in the answers, and how those answers ultimately lead
to healthier, more attuned board leadership.
your organizations board experienced the following?
between strategic, long term thinking and the organizations
needs for longer term vision?
to raise money and secure the financial resources necessary
for program growth?
mental road blocks prohibiting it from re-energizing itself
and moving forward with gusto and a renewed sense of commitment
and distrust among board members and/or micro-management of
to successfully understand and speak the issues germane to the
agencys stakeholders, clients, consumers, or philanthropic
to cast aside old paradigms to make way for new best practices?
of its legal, financial, or fiduciary responsibilities?
of leadership capacity inhibiting you to effectively move to
your next success level?
to lay the groundwork and develop a positive culture that best
serves the mission?
path of next-generation growth that leads to new endeavors?
sloth-like approach to critical, timely issues and opportunities?
