Description:

This book gives nonprofit board leaders a solid resource that shows how to achieve excellence and peak performance in the boardroom by fully realizing and putting into practice, tri-modal governance: proficiency in the three modes of governance (fiduciary, strategic and generative). This model was first introduced in Governance as Leadership. The author showcases the practices of high performing nonprofit boards and provide practical guidance toward optimizing those practices: flow (high skill and high purpose); discernment; deliberation; prudence; divergent thinking; insight; meaningfulness; consequence to the organization; and integrity for improved organizational performance and trustee engagement.
