The Board-Savvy CEO: Building a High-Impact Partnership With Your Board.
"If you are deeply concerned about the leadership of nonprofit and public organizations of all shapes and sizes, you will want to add The Board-Savvy CEO to your reading — and rereading — list and keep it close at hand as a powerful leadership resource."

After taking a fresh look at the work of governing, which author Doug Eadie defines as making a never-ending stream of high-impact decisions and judgements, The Board-Savvy CEO explores in detail the three key roles of board-savvy CEOs:
- Taking the lead in developing the board's capacity to do the kind of high-impact governing work that makes a real difference in an organization's affairs.
- Helping the board to map out processes for actively engaging board members and transforming them into strong owners of their governing decisions and judgements.
- And working closely with the board to ensure that the board-CEO working realationship is healthy enough to withstand the inevitable pressures that every organization experiences in this rapidly changing world.
