Following-up on LLC’s recent webinar, Daring to Lead 2011: Leadership Development & Support for Nonprofit Leaders, presenter Marla Cornelius addresses a number of participant questions and comments that were raised during the session.

Several people who attended the recent Daring to Lead 2011 webinar raised a number of important questions about boards and asked for insights into the often paradoxical nature of the executive director and board relationship.  This isn’t a surprise considering the sector has been hotly debating the question of board performance for many years. And although there has been significant attention paid to these issues, executives continue to be frustrated with antiquated board structures and disappointed in board members’ efforts.  Considering that we are not much further along today than in years past, the question “How do we improve board performance?” has become almost rhetorical.
