The Executive Director Performance Review

The Pinnacle Example of A Nonprofit’s Commitment to Accountability, Talent Management and A Shared Leadership Culture

Thursday, June 18, 2020
12:00PM – 1:00PM (Pacific Time)

It can be extremely challenging for a board of directors to provide a timely, thoughtful and fair evaluation of the chief professional officer. For some, the entire process can seem cumbersome and overwhelming. For others, it can be viewed as a political landmine. Yet, establishing an organizational process for setting goals, creating check-ins, and providing useful feedback lay the cornerstone for a culture of accountability and a commitment to developing and cultivating talent.

This one-hour overview of executive leadership performance planning and review provides a framework for board members and executives to begin conversations to construct a review process that reflects a year-round commitment to executive success, mutual accountability between management and governance, and a climate of talent development, retention and succession.

Learning Outcomes

You will leave this course ready to:

  • Conduct a thoughtful executive performance review
  • Engage in a directed conversation between management and the board that results in a published strategy to co-create and sustain a culture of year-round accountability
  • Incorporate leadership succession planning into thoughtful long-range planning for the organization and its talent management

Intended Audience

This webinar is one segment of a three-part series focused on the accountable nonprofit. It has been designed for board leadership and the executive, as well as the consultants and management support organizations who support them, to engage in developing, monitoring, and evaluating performance goals for each of the critical elements of a successful organization: Governance, management, and organizational performance.
