• Let Rudder partner with your organization to develop governance practices that enable leadership and staff to focus on implementing the organizational mission.

    Successful organizations require high functioning governance structures.

Is your board struggling with member engagement? Do board or committee members lack connectedness to the daily work of the organization? Is your board spending more time on tactical issues rather than strategy and oversight? Are politics overshadowing diverse talents and perspectives?

In a 2014 survey of over 800 non-profit boards, only 1 in 5 Executive Directors strongly agreed that the majority of board members are engaged. Additionally, only 60% of board members answer positively on understanding their board roles and responsibilities. (BoardSource, Jan 2015)
