S2 E3 Take Me To Your Leaders: An Executive & Board Episode

Oct 5, 2022 | Camp and Church Leadership, Podcast

The relationship between your Executive Director and your Board of Directors is a vitally important – maybe the most important – relationship in the infrastructure of your ministry.  There are ways to keep it healthy and thriving, giving foundation from underneath, support from all sides, vision from above, and spirit from within.

On this episode, we’ll talk about a few keys to executive and board connections, borrowing from and processing through ideas from Joan Garry, a nationally renowned nonprofit leadership consultant and speaker, and Keith Johnson, The Board Coach, who shares 4 keys to healthy executive and board relationships. Find out more at their sites below.

Joan Garry,
Keith Johnson,

We’ll also offer up a set of tools we built to help with one of these keys: an annual mutual review and evaluation process. Find out more about our Director Evaluation support. We’d love to help.
