Empowering Your Board with Education

We recently discussed the importance of board performance and the weighty responsibility boards have to safeguard the mission, vision and assets of the organization they serve. This is only possible when the board really understands what those are. Boards must be educated in the following categories:
  • History and programs
  • Strategy
  • Current situation
  • Governance role
  • Fiduciary responsibility
  • Fundraising and development
So what are you doing to make sure the individuals on your board have the knowledge they need to not only fulfill their role as part of a board of directors, but to feel fulfilled as well?

JD Coaching and Consulting developed the Pentagon of Performance after conducting an extensive survey on board performance. Education is one-fifth of a framework that measures the strength of nonprofit boards. Stay tuned as we continue to explore the various dimensions of the Pentagon of Performance and how it affects your board. Download highlights from the benchmark study conducted by JD Coaching and Consulting.
