Nonprofit boards are challenged to provide exceptional leadership, but often focus too closely on a desired outcome instead of the path that must be followed to achieve their goals. Transformational Governance offers boards an innovative approach to governance that puts the emphasis less on the behaviors and qualities of high-performing boards and more on the stages and processes that board members and the staff can use to transform their boards.

Based on research, the book reveals the practices and strategies implemented by a wide variety of transformed membership associations. The authors explore the actions nonprofit leaders can take to achieve their desired results, including altering or updating their fiduciary responsibilities, changing bylaws, policies, board structure, and expectations. Using case studies and teachable moments, Transformational Governance describes the progressions boards can follow to perform at a higher level. With a foreword written by Anne Wallestad, BoardSource president & CEO, it comes highly recommended by Anne and other nonprofit leaders.
