Invest More Time with Board Members

Slide42A thoughtful study with more than 3,000 Executive Directors from nonprofits across the country is compiled in the Daring to Lead 2011 report, a joint project led by CompassPoint Nonprofit Services and the Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation.

Rick Moyers, co-author of the report, understands executive directors will be better served by investing more time with their board members.

Moyers believes:

“the more effort nonprofit leaders put into supporting their boards, the happier they are with the board’s performance—but few leaders spend enough hours working with trustees to make a difference.”

The report presents four “calls to action” that are straightforward yet often neglected strategies:

1)      Plan for leadership succession

2)      Increase the Board role in understanding financial sustainability

3)      Expand professional development for the chief executive

4)      Find new ways to strengthen the board
