Dealing With Board Directors

/ / Chưa được phân loại

Boards of directors play an essential role in holding non-profit organizations accountable for their fiduciary obligations and strategic direction. They are a group of individuals who have diverse backgrounds and experience to make decisions regarding the direction of an organization. Unfortunately the boards don’t always operate smoothly. This is due to the lack of proper planning, training, and communication.

If a specific board member’s behavior causes significant friction within the Board, it may be time to address that issue. Whether the director is acting aggressively, divisively or abusive or overbearing, their actions can be detrimental to the organization and its mission.

Resolving conflicts with board members starts with direct intervention. Chairs of boards should sit down with the person and explain that their behavior is unacceptable and needs to change. Remind the person that they were hired to the board based on their abilities and experience, and that it is in everyone’s interest to work efficiently.

The next step is to collect details and documentation of the board member’s behavior that is causing the issue. A code of conduct is an effective way to stop inappropriate behavior since it defines the expectations for board members.
