Workshop Details

Evaluating Your Executive Director- An Opportunity for Expanded Partnership

The greatest investment a nonprofit makes is in its agency leader. A primary responsibility of the Board is to assess their performance. A key way to protect that investment and support the agency leader is to conduct an annual, well planned, and transparent performance evaluation. A good evaluation builds trust between the Board and the leader, provides a roadmap for both parties, defines clear goals and builds the leader's capacity. The interactive workshop demystifies the process, explaining timeframes, Board roles, data collection approaches and a framework for gathering and communicating the results and provides time for answering participants' questions.

  • Explain the importance of the Executive Director evaluation and the Board's responsibility to support, develop, and evaluate their leader. 
  • Describe the planning process for an Executive Director evaluation. 
  • Identify sample evaluation components. 
  • Identify best practices in communicating the evaluation results to create a motivational and impactful action plan based on the findings

Illuminating How White Dominant Culture Shows Up In Nonprofit Organizations
