A strong and healthy board-staff partnership provides flexible and resilient leadership that contributes positively to the organization’s overall impact.
To cultivate the trust, respect, candor, and communication that characterize a healthy partnership between a board and staff, BoardSource recommends a number of key practices, including the following:
- Regular check-ins between the executive and chair.
- A commitment to “no surprises.”
- Thoughtful reflection on performance.
