I have a dedicated Board who were struggling to organize as a cohesive team. Like many boards they take their responsibilities to the organization seriously and they value their relationships with each other. Sometimes their work requires engaging in healthy conflict and this was very difficult, but they were committed to developing their strategic thinking, discussion and decision making skills. Kate created the structure and safety for necessary discussion to take place, prepared us for and facilitated that discussion, and allowed all voices to be heard and vital decisions to be made. Kate leaves us with resources that are a foundation for our ongoing development, and she is available as trusted and knowledgeable sounding board for all manner of nonprofit governance issues.
