Reframing the Work of Nonprofit Boards

A new framework for helping nonprofit organizations maximize the
effectiveness of their boards.

Written by noted consultants and researchers attuned to the needs
of practitioners, Governance as Leadership redefines
nonprofit governance. It provides a powerful framework for a new
covenant between trustees and executives: more macrogovernance in
exchange for less micromanagement.

Informed by theories that have transformed the practice of
organizational leadership, this book sheds new light on the
traditional fiduciary and strategic work of the board and
introduces a critical third dimension of effective trusteeship:
generative governance. It serves boards as both a resource of fresh
approaches to familiar territory and a lucid guide to important new
territory, and provides a road map that leads nonprofit trustees
and executives to governance as leadership.

Governance as Leadership was developed in collaboration with
BoardSource, the premier resource for practical information, tools
and best practices, training, and leadership development for board
members of nonprofit organizations. Through its highly acclaimed
programs and services, BoardSource enables organizations to fulfill
their missions by helping build effective nonprofit boards and
offering credible support in solving tough problems. For the latest
