For Hospice Boards
We need a new approach to deal with our current environment.Bill Musick
Great Board Chairs
It’s been said that organizations can never be better than their boards. And HGA believes great boards probably don’t exist without an exceptional board chair. In this Hospice Governance Academy Spotlight Interview, Bill Musick, President of Integriti3D, speaks with Marla Cornelius, consultant and coach in nonprofit leadership, management, and board governance, to learn more about what makes a great board chair. This first interview segment focuses on what defines a great board chair: effectiveness, facilitative, the different roles a board chair plays, and their sphere of influence.
Leveraging the Partnership Between the Board Chair and the Chief Executive
There’s arguably no more important governance relationship than that between the board chair and the chief executive of the organization. In this Hospice Governance Academy Spotlight Interview, Bill Musick, President of Integriti3D, speaks with Makiyah Moody of La Piana Consulting about this important relationship. The board chair and the chief executive need to establish a rapport that serves as a model for other relationships on the board. Their roles are different, but interdependent, so they need to be in-sync in order to work toward the mission and the impact that they want to have.
Finally, hospice-focused board development
The Hospice Governance Academy was created to provide industry-specific content directly to hospice leaders. HGA is an easy, online learning platform that ensures your board has a shared base of core hospice governance knowledge and up-to-date information on trends and issues facing hospice care today. Content is contributed regularly by industry-recognized experts.
