Co-Founder @ People for Purpose

Better Boards is pleased to present "What does it take to be a high performing non-profit Board?" in partnership with Melissa Macpherson, Co-Founder @ People for Purpose.

Boards operate and communicate differently because at the end of the day, they are made up of human beings who have individually experienced life in different ways. One of the key aspects to high-performing non-profit Boards, is found at the intersection of IQ, EQ and SQ (Spiritual intelligence).

Join Melissa and hear her thoughts after having worked with hundreds of non-profit Boards, on what the common elements she has seen to high-performing non-profit Boards . Melissa will explore the importance of

  • beneficiary centricity,

  • diversity,

  • performance reflection,

  • impact measurement, and

  • the integral importance of understanding the personalities, experiences and perspectives around your Boardroom table.

Hear what Melissa thinks the sector is doing well in terms of governance, and where the sector could improve.
