Class Description:

Drawing on his work with nearly 500 nonprofit and public organizations over the past 25 years, presenter Doug Eadie will provide workshop participants with detailed, practical guidance in applying the High-Impact Governing Model in their organizations, to produce 4 high-stakes outcomes: 

  1. Effective strategies for dealing with the highest-priority strategic and operational issues facing your organization
  2. Your board’s strong ownership of its governing work
  3. A board-CEO partnership that is close, productive, and enduring
  4. Your board’s taking strong accountability for its own governing performance

Doug will cover key features of the High-Impact Governing Model, including: clarification of the board’s governing work; the use of well-designed standing committees as “governing engines;” managing strategic change; and the board’s management of its own governing performance.

Class participants will learn:

  • The key elements of high-impact governing work;
  • How to use board standing committees as powerful "governing engines"; and
  • Practical ways to build board accountability for its own governing performance.
