Many nonprofit boards, especially as we emerge from the pandemic, are rethinking how they govern in order to more effectively advance our missions in constructive partnership with the chief executive. Based on the book, Governance as Leadership, attendees will engage in a highly interactive discussion on how to effectively reframe the work of the board using the fiduciary, strategic, and generative modes. Attendees will also explore how boards can cultivate a culture where assumptions are challenged and tough questions are asked to ensure due diligence and ethical decision-making.

In this session, you will learn how to:

- Better engage your board by offering more meaningful and consequential work
- Increase the value of board contributions to fiduciary and strategic work
- Invite your board to engage in generative thinking, the most underutilized of the three modes
- Build a culture of inquiry in your boardroom
