Does Your Board Keep You Up at Night?
Executive directors sit in a unique position of authority and leadership, directing a staff while also answering to a board of directors. Effective executives learn to see their board as partner rather than boss. They also engage and mobilize their board to do high-priority work that benefits the organization.
Join KNN, the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits and Third Space Studio for this webinar to explore some of the habits and mindsets that executive directors can use to create a strong sense of shared leadership with the board.
