Composition is the foundation of board performance, and it has a strong correlation to a board’s engagement—its ability to work together to be effective. Composition of the board defines who the directors are, their capabilities and how they utilize their areas of expertise to help the organization move strategically forward.
A nonprofit board is really just the sum total of wisdom and experience of its collective members and their attributes and skills:
- Competency (diversity of skill sets) and expertise
- Capacity to give (time and money)
- Capacity to get (resources, donors, etc.)
JD Coaching & Consulting developed a Board Performance Assessment that helps identify a board’s key areas of proficiency as well as their performance gaps. From this evaluation, we are able to offer key solutions to help the board better serve their organization. Targeted recommendations concerning what type of additions your board could benefit from can make an enormous difference. Request a copy of our benchmark study.
