This third Daring to Lead brief examines the paradoxical nature of board and executive director relationships. Key findings include:

  • While executive directors tended to give boards relatively high marks when asked about overall performance, their responses to more speci­fic questions often contradicted that assessment—and suggest that boards are neglecting critical governance responsibilities.
  • Despite these board performance challenges, most executive directors are not spending a signi­ficant percentage of their time working with and supporting their boards.
  • Executive directors who spend more time working with their boards demonstrate higher satisfaction with board performance.

    I recently retired after 30+ years as a nonprofit manager, most recently I ran a hospice but I’ve also worked with homeless families, domestic violence and did research on transportation for the disabled. I would be interested in working as an interim ED/CEO. Is anyone at the Management Center matching interim leaders with nonprofit organizatons?

    I look forward to your response.
