Board Challenges

We successfully address these common challenges for Leadership Boards:

  1. Our board does not differentiate “board work” from “staff work”.
  2. Our board members do not fully understand their roles or responsibilities.
  3. Our theological distinctives are not well represented in our organization.
  4. Our senior executive is not leading well.
  5. We do not have a well integrated philosophy and strategy for ministry.
  6. The criteria for decision making is not as consistent as needed.
  7. Measurements… who, what, where, when, why and how?
  8. Our budget is not appropriately aligned to our priorities.
  9. There is little accountability for decision making throughout the organization.
  10. We need some training on how to thrive as board members.
  11. There is little accountability for decision making throughout the organization.
  12. What type of board do we need to be?
  13. It’s nearly impossible for us to make wise, timely decisions.
  14. We are unclear about our organization’s priorities.
  15. We need some insights into redemptive conflict resolution.
  16. If our board wasn’t micro-managing, we wouldn’t know what to do.
  17. Our board sometimes creates as many problems as we solve.
  18. Our board doesn’t make much of a difference to our organization.
