In today’s complex world, it is paramount for Board Leaders and the Executive Director to work in alignment and respect the division of labor between governing and managing. Yet these relationships are often challenged by differing understanding of roles, leadership turnover, personalities, and a lack of good communication. Too often we are content to accept an “ok” relationship rather than investing the time to build a stronger partnership that will advance the mission and strengthen the organization. It’s time to make this a priority.

In this interactive session, you will learn:
- Key elements and proven outcomes of a constructive partnership
- How to move from a good relationship to a great relationship
- The importance of this relationship to overall Board-staff relations
- How to disagree and still serve as a strong leadership team
- The integral connection between the Board Chair-Executive Director partnership and Board culture
