A Foundation Relationship: Microburst for Executive Leadership

May 14, 2019 8:30 am - 10:00 am

The relationship between your board of directors and executive leadership is one of the most documented topics in nonprofit literature. To have a high-functioning, effective nonprofit, it is critical for the leaders of an organization and the board of directors to understand and appreciate their distinct roles. During this Microburst*, Executive Directors/CEO's in partnership with their Board Chairs, will delve into practices that help establish (and maintain!) a strong and healthy partnership which provides flexible and resilient leadership for your organization.

To cultivate trust, respect, candor, and communication we will dive into the following topics:
• Establishing regular check-ins between the executive and chair with open and consistent communication.
• A commitment to “no surprises" and the importance of open and honest sharing between the executive and board, especially when there is bad news or crises. 
• Thoughtful reflection on performance on both the executive's and the board's performance. 

All attendees will walk away with tangible tools, connections, and ways to find additional resources to help your organization reach its goals and set a clear direction for the future.

*Formerly known as Roundtables for Executive Directors, Microbursts for Executive Leadership let you quickly immerse yourself in topics that are important to you right now! These topic-specific professional development sessions provide condensed but effective information and practical takeaways on topics relevant to executive leadership within a nonprofit. Please note that Microburst trainings are solely for Executive Directors, CEO's, Presidents, and Board Chairs. We invite other staff to attend our Skill & Knowledge Boosters for All Staff.
