Dilemmas of an executive director
from By Bob Harris and Ben Graybar
I was privileged to co-author an article titled, "
Disappointing the executive director
," with Maile Ilac Boeder in March. The article addressed the issue of board overreach and micromanagement. In response, my colleague Ben Graybar, a commercial banker and board member, offers his insights regarding dilemmas sometimes facing executive directors (ED). From the board wanting to fire the executive to staff attending meetings, he shares his experiences on nonprofit boards.
