Board Chair and Executive Director Relationship: Power, communication & risk

This e-study explores the relationship between a nonprofit executive director and the chair of the board of directors. A strong relationship between the board chair and executive is important to the success of an organization. But this relationship comes with many complexities related to power, communication, and risk tolerance. This e-study will explore these complexities using three short scenarios to explore questions such as: How is power negotiated? What happens when the two leaders have different approaches to leadership or levels of risk tolerance? How can the executive help shift the board to a new role that better meets the needs of the organization?
