Do nonprofit organizations really need to bother with performance reviews of their board of trustees and executive leadership?

The reality is that everyone needs feedback and periodic evaluations and assessments to continue growing and developing in their field, even executive leadership and board of trustees . Just like at a business, nonprofit leaders and the board should conduct annual evaluations and assessments.

The dangers of not utilizing periodic performance reviews and evaluations of your executive leadership team and board will result in your organization not performing at the level required for success. It will also result in your team not being strategically aligned to achieve your strategic goals. Evaluation and assessment surveys provide you with the knowledge to build upon your existing strengths while knowing what specific areas of performance need to be improved with those you serve being the ultimate beneficiary.

The best way to ensure your organization is successfully serving your mission is to identify how well your Executive Leadership team and board members work together as true partners in both sustaining your mission and achieving your strategic vision.

High-performing nonprofit organizations have boards that have developed into providing leadership to the organization “in partnership” with the CEO and the executive leadership team. Evaluating and assessing how well your organization identifies areas of strength as well as areas that may need improvement is crucial to achieving your strategic goals and sustaining your mission.

Join us for a virtual meeting on April 20 as we hear from expert Dennis C. Miller, Founder & Chairman of DCM Associates, on what the process looks like, what it should include, why honest feedback is important, and most of all, why it’s essential in making progress in your organization.

Tools and tips will be provided during this presentation.
