In the last year, have you had a performance appraisal? Even before the pandemic, many, if not most, more nonprofit CEOs and executive directors had not. (45 percent, Daring to Lead, 75 percent Social Impact Architecture.)
You may feel you’re better off without one because CEO evaluations create wounds, discouragement, and exit plans when done poorly.
Yet, when done well, performance appraisals create hope, organizational learning, aligned expectations, and personal growth.
Your CEO evaluations can become turning points for:
Clear expectations between the board and staff about roles,
Better goal alignment,
Vigorous organization performance assessments, and
Common sense salary discussions.
Join Karen’s CEO Conversation to discover how your peers approach their CEO performance appraisals and best practice used to ace them. Whether you’ve yet to have your first appraisal or are facing your 40th, this session will give you insight on what you can achieve and how to approach these critical board conversations.
