Board Tune-Up

Our Board Tune-Up Services include
  • Customized training on the roles of a board,
  • Strategic planning,
  • Board retreats,
  • Personal coaching for Executive Directors and Board Chairs
  • Board Roles to Board Goals.
Our Board Roles to Board Goals service pairs the nonprofit board with a trained facilitator who walks the board through a step-by-step process that capitalizes on the board member’s talents, gets board members working as a team to develop shared governance goals for the year, and focuses the board on their board duties.

The Board Roles to Board Goals process was authored by nonprofit consultant Jay W. Vogt of Peoplesworth.

Board Tune-Up

“The bottom line in an organization is that if a board is not properly structured and does not understand its responsibilities, the organization can not do what it needs to do.” 
- Cheryl Taylor, Foellinger Foundation
