Jeff Stratton, The Board Doctor, has helped thousands of nonprofit executives like you. He’s on call when you need one-on-one guidance for your board-management problems. Here are the top 10 questions he has consulted on:

  • The board wants to survey staff about my performance. What can I do?

  • The board wants to initiate a 360 degree performance evaluation for my appraisal. What can I do?

  • My board won't raise money for the organization. What can I do to teach them it's part of the job to support the organization's fundraising activities?

  • My board doesn't know what the staff does. They've asked me to send them all employee job descriptions for a review. I don't think this is their job. What do I do?

  • The board wants to meet without me to discuss my performance. How should I respond?

  • My board has never evaluated my performance before. Can you send me some forms and guidance?

  • I have a board member who is asking me to account for how I spend my time each day. What should I do?

  • We're struggling to recruit new board members. Do you have any suggestions to improve our recruiting?

  • Can you send me a board policy on topic XYZ?

  • I have a board member who takes staff calls and listens to their complaints about me. It's a back channel of communication from employees to the board. How can I get the board to respect and support the chain of command and let me manage employees?
