Create a Positive Board Experience

This is the third in a four-part series, based on the book, Stop The Non-Profit Board Blame Game, by Hardy Smith.

The book is segmented into four parts and this post addresses the title of this post and is part III of the book.
This section of the book rightly so addresses the importance of relationships between the CEO and the board and board members with their board member peers.
And what’s the best way to build these relationships?  Open, honest and transparent communications with board members.  For me, I personally don’t feel there is such a thing as over communicating.
Hardy goes on to discuss the role of recognition and appreciation of your board members, as well as, making sure your volunteers have a positive experience.
He finishes this section of the book by highlighting the importance of knowing your board members, board engagement and ways to achieve board diversity.  And he’s not just talking about gender and race.
