Staff and Board Training

Board Development

Having worked with many boards throughout the country – ranging from large health system boards to small, community nonprofit boards – board management and development continues to be a challenge for both staff and board leaders alike.  At times, the board does not have the right people in the right seats, but most often, board members with good intentions lack the knowledge and direction to significantly help the organization.

One of our most requested services is a Board Development Package that includes training in board composition, recruiting, orientation, training, and annual evaluation.

We specialize in board development that leads to better use of leadership time, deeper engagement and support from the board, positive board experience, and the overall health of the organization.  We help boards understand and carry out their role better, recognize simple ways to contribute to the organization’s success and engage with fundraising and community relations in a variety of ways.  This can be done through ongoing board engagement and board retreat facilitation.
