PREPARING YOUR BOARD FOR THE NEXT LEVEL

BOARD DEVELOPMENT

HELPING YOUR BOARD REACH CONSENSUS ON ITS IDENTITY, IMPACT, AND FUTURE

Good governance is essential to effective nonprofits. We help boards through workshops, retreats, consulting, and coaching. Our role is to bring the diverse perspectives of your board to a consensus on the future of your organization.

A board ensures your nonprofit has the resources, guidance and leadership necessary to carry out your mission. We work with boards at all stages—from emerging to advanced—to facilitate critical conversations about your nonprofit’s mission, identity, performance, policies, and composition. We offer support for nonprofit governance basics, recruitment strategies, committee structures, fundraising engagement, and more.

WORKSHOPS & RETREATS

BRING DIVERSE PERSPECTIVES TOGETHER

We facilitate  half-day, full-day, and weekend workshops focused on strategic oversight, CEO assessments, accountability practices, and fundraising. Choose from one of our pre-designed workshops or work with Good Insight to customize your own.

DISCUSS YOUR RETREAT

Essentials of Effective Governance explores the fundamentals of board service. This engaging, interactive 2 hour workshop unpacks what “fiduciary duties” really mean, clarifies the differences between governance and management, and provides easy ways to engage in fundraising. Participants leave feeling clear and enthusiastic about the many ways they can make a difference in your organization.

LEARN MORE

During a half-day workshop, Secrets of Successful Recruitment lays out the process to recruit the board of your dreams. Grounded with a racial equity lens, we work through a process of reflecting on values, assessing needs, understanding challenges, developing compelling materials, and mapping out networks so that you can recruit the board your organization needs for its future. 

Coming fall of 2020. Interested in pre-booking this session? Email hello@good-insight.org.

We’ll work with you to understand your needs and create an engaging, fun experience that will spur action across the board.

BOARD ASSESSMENTS

MEASURE YOUR PERFORMANCE

We are certified to administer BoardSource’s Board Self-Assessment Tool to gauge your organization’s performance against industry benchmarks. This completely-confidential process allows your board to speak candidly on all aspects of operations, creating an honest, efficient action plan for the upcoming year. We work with your board to understand the findings, implement improvements, and create a strong board ready to tackle your challenges.

GOVERNANCE CONSULTING

ALIGNING ASPIRATIONS WITH ACTION

Our governance experts draw upon our skills, expertise, and lived experiences as board consultants and board members. Our highly personalized approach to board consulting can address our clients most urgent and important needs.

Each client receives a customized consulting work plan that prioritizes topics such as board recruitment strategies, policy development, CEO assessments, or strategic alignment. We do not believe that a one size fits all, so we’ll create an individualized plan based on your situation, objectives, and resources.
