Helping Board Members Spread Their Passion for the Mission
Leaders of this small anti-poverty nonprofit wanted to educate the entire board about why the organization was needed and how its unique model worked. They hoped that a theory of change process would enable board members to gain greater clarity and be able to more consistently and confidently share the organization’s mission and impact.
“The greatest advantage of this process was the education and motivation of our board. Before, some board members didn’t feel fully comfortable explaining how our approach led to outcomes. Eleanor’s process helped everyone think about our mission from their own perspective. Now each member owns the message and can talk about it in their own words. They’re more willing to go out and speak to the community.” –Janis Baron, Founder/Board Chair, Sunday Friends
