Many nonprofits never take full advantage of their board members. Extraordinary Board Leadership: The Keys to Governing deals with an incredibly important topic – “high-impact governing” – which is at the heart not only of a nonprofit’s effectiveness, but also the key to a positive, productive, and enduring board-CEO partnership. This text offers practical, hands-on guidance, which is based on in-depth real-life experience and can be put to immediate use. It goes beyond the old-fashioned “policy governance” approach – beyond the rules – in dealing with the board-CEO-executive staff partnership. The 2nd edition of this successful book includes more case studies and new information aimed at public governing bodies, as well as more tables and charts to accompany a fresh new text design.
