When You Love the Organization but Not the Leadership

It is famously hard to know how to intervene in an organization whose longtime leadership apparently does not embody, and may even violate, the mission. Letting serious issues simmer is never good governance, but when fear of bad publicity and the discomfort of straining relationships overrides transparency, nonprofit boards trade a chosen course of inaction now for a burning platform later.

All organizations have flaws, and even the best leaders need to be challenged. The question isn’t whether nonprofit boards will face these challenges, but when, and how they will respond when the moment comes. Choosing to keep a situation quiet may work in the short term, but keeping Pandora’s box sealed forever is seldom possible. Once it’s opened, problems that have been ignored will worsen. Taking on issues aggressively and transparently isn’t easy, but it offers real solutions rather than Band-Aids.
