With Special Guest: Lori O’Keefe, President & CEO, Triangle Community Foundation

If you’ve been a nonprofit CEO or executive director for over a few years, you’ve experienced multiple board chair partnerships. If you’re like most nonprofit CEOs, your chairs have been a mixed blessing. Some standout. Others are okay, and hopefully, no more than induced a countdown until their terms ended.

What can nonprofit CEO do to enhance their relationships with their chairs? Lots.

“When leaders, teams, cultures, and individuals focus on strengths, they have a better chance at winning than if they focus on improving deficiencies.”

Looking at strengths is why Karen’s next CEO Conversation will explore The Best CEO-Chair Partnerships. Together on Jan. 12 at 1 pm Eastern, we’ll tease out what makes these relationships stand out. Plus, we’ll dive into how to apply what we discover to your current board chair relationship.

Our special guest for this session is Lori O’Keefe, who was “hired from within” to lead the Triangle Community Foundation.

Join Karen’s CEO Conversation on Jan. 12 at 1 to learn with your fellow CEOs about “how the sausage is made” in the Best CEO-Chair Partnerships.
