Time to Fix a “Broken” Board?
You’ve got big plans, right? In fact, you’ve got a much bigger vision for your nonprofit than where it is now. And you’re ready to go…it’s time to add staff, eliminate a waiting list, add or expand a program…maybe even kick-off a capital campaign.
But, if you’re like many nonprofits, the Board you have now is holding you back. I’m guessing it feels pretty overwhelming and stressful to feel like you’re the only one in charge, always dragging your Board along for the ride.
You’re the one recruiting new members. You’re the one putting together a strategic plan (because your Board doesn’t even know enough about what the organization does, or what they’re supposed to do, so all they say is “whatever you think is fine”).
Everything is Not Fine. But it is Fixable.
Think you’re the only one with Board problems? Not at all. In fact, in my experience, most Boards experience some common problems that can be fixed pretty easily — once you all get on the same page and head in the right direction.
And the best part? When you get your Board doing the right things and re-committed to giving, your Board can be your biggest asset, helping you with time, resources and funding.
