Great nonprofit organizations build great boards. Boards can either maintain the status quo or lead their organization to new levels of governance, management, and achievement. It is increasingly important for nonprofit organizations and their boards to be dynamic and adaptable. Boards of the future need to consist of capable, savvy decision makers who can adapt to and drive change forward. Boards must be able to think beyond traditional governance to ensure the sustainability of the organization.
The building of breakthrough boards is an intentional effort that can lead to greater fundraising, enhanced strategic capability, and access to new resources.
Our collaborative approach begins by identifying the best board member prospects, which leads to enrolling and vetting each candidate to ensure the highest quality match. Our Consultants assist in orienting board members to harness their passion and commitment. Our approach engages new members, leading to more dynamic meetings. We evaluate both individual and board performance to foster a culture of excellence.
There are three key components of board structure and functioning success: the bylaws, committees, and engagement in the strategy development process. Boards need to define how they will operate to support the strategic direction of the organization and align their structure accordingly. Our Consultants are facilitators, guiding boards through complex discussions and decision making, leading to change and improvement.
Nonprofit business models are changing fast, but the necessary changes in governance often do not keep pace with the shifting landscape. Nonprofit organizations must take on the challenge of becoming more dynamic in the rapidly changing marketplace. This journey begins with building a breakthrough board of directors capable of aligning its organization with future realities.
