Event Description

Title
Balancing Leadership Between Board and Staff: How to Have Critical Conversations

Presenters
Leslie Bevan, Leadership Development Coach and Consultant, Deeper Funner Change
Kim Thomas, Nonprofit and Philanthropic Consultant, KThomas Consulting, LLC

Join us for this session, which will provide honest and practical discussion of the complexities of the nonprofit Board/ED relationship. We will take a closer look at how the nonprofit sector views the responsibilities of the executive director, board, board members, and board chair as a window into developing a shared understanding of these complexities, eliminating role confusion, and providing tips for having honest, healthy conversations that prevent unwelcome surprises and keep everyone focused on mission-impact.

Area of Nonprofit Excellence - Leadership & Culture and Governance

Every learning opportunity NAO offers is aligned with one of nine areas of our Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence that NAO believes are critical to every nonprofit’s effectiveness and success. Diversity, equity and inclusion are essential for a thriving, effective and successful nonprofit; therefore, DE&I is embedded across all nine areas.

This event focuses on Leadership & Culture and Governance. For additional resources in this category, visit: Leadership & Culture and Governance.
