It's a Battle on the Board



Wouldn't charity governance be so much easier if it wasn't for all of your fellow trustees?

Being knowledgeable and experienced as a trustee is important, but having the ability to interact effectively with your fellow board members, that is where good governance really starts. Get it wrong and, very quickly, you've got a battle on the board.

Working in sustained harmony towards a common goal can be a tall order for many trustees. Debra Allcock Tyler's approach to this challenging subject is characteristically engaging as she adopts a different ABBA tune as the theme for each chapter. Frank and with real-life examples firmly to the fore, she mixes leadership theory with practical advice delivered straight from the shoulder.

It includes: * Understanding the trustee role * Working with fellow trustees and the CEO * Compliance and regulation * Dealing with information and understanding the money * The psychology of decision-making * Managing risk and handling crisis

So, if you are a trustee or about to become one, you will benefit from the insights and hard-won wisdom distilled in this book. If you want to be the dancing queen (or king) of good governance and avoid a waterloo for your charity, then this book is for you.
