Ci-dessous, un extrait de son billet ainsi que quelques liens utiles pour améliorer la performance des « Boards ». Bonne lecture !
Here are a few ideas to help ministry and nonprofit leaders work more closely (and pleasurably) with their boards. Who knows, maybe everyone will actually start enjoying board meetings!
Reconnect regularly with each director, one-to-one if possible, to tap into their wisdom, learn their perspective, and gain valuable confidential input
Invest to improve on your strengths through seminars, workshops, or conferences…like CLA 2014
Identify existing nonprofit board best practices and install the top two that you feel add the most value to your organization
When meeting with key external stakeholders, ask how they think the organization is performing
Be more available to your staff, volunteers, and key community partners
Become a director on another nonprofit or ministry board and gain valuable perspective of just what that is like
Review your calendar monthly and the organization’s budget to determine if you are allocating time and treasure in line with the year’s goals
Conduct periodic board update (they hate “training”) sessions
