How Heart of Florida United Way responds to Pulse tragedy.
Two weeks+ following June 12, what is happening…who is contributing to the healing…in Orlando.
Today, most nonprofits seek a CEO with fundraising experience. Generally, that experience is in the annual campaign and major gift fundraising.
But at times, the nonprofit Board hires a new CEO who has built successful special events. With the expectation that this new leader will apply that ability successfully.
My advice to Board search committees is, negotiate with the top candidates on how this will be applied in six month blocks of time from hire date. What is the hoped for result? What experience and qualities of the candidate can be best applied to get improved results?
Building on a solid track record has the best chance of success. Focusing on candidates who get the mission, who communicate with enthusiasm, who seem most engaging with other people…look for the skills that will have the best chance at success.
Then monitor progress along the way.
For nonprofit organizations to achieve their highest level of effectiveness, there must be accountability.
Effective nonprofits adopt performance standards for the executive director and a self-assessment process for the Board itself.
Nonprofit executives adopt sound performance review process to assure staff are working to achieve their responsibilities.
And high-functioning Boards have an annual or semi-annual review process in place of their executive director.
Transparency is a value we should strive for. There needs to be sound processes of evaluation in place so we know we’re measuring what’s important, and report to our clients and supporters how we’re doing. Our successes. As well as areas we’re working to improve.
It’s continuous improvement that contributes to nonprofit effectiveness.
