The success of your organization begins with your executive director – board chair team.

The Executive Director-Board Chair partnership is vital to the success of your organization. A strong partnership aligns your organization to your mission and supports achievement of strategic goals.

Board Governance Academy is an innovative program designed for Executive Director and Board Chair teams to maximize their relationship and achieve best practices in areas like facilitating strategic discussions and managing board dynamics and conflict.

This program offers a multi-faceted approach to building a high-functioning partnership through in-class and e-learning, peer interaction, and valuable expert facilitation.

Your executive director – board chair team and your organization benefit!

Integrating e-learning and self-assessments with in-class training sessions, the cohort model of the program fosters the executive director and board chair to:

  • Strengthen your organizational culture. A high-performing Executive Director-Board Chair partnership sets your organizational tone and results in strengthened culture, increased productivity and improved program delivery.
  • Increase your board’s effectiveness. Lead your board as a team to align their work and focus on strategic goals.
  • Develop constructive conflict processes. With shared leadership and management, the Executive Director and Board Chair work collaboratively to manage conflict and apply it to increase your organizational outcomes.
