These changing, challenging times call for conscious Board leadership that goes well beyond conventional "policy-making", and focuses on performance and strategy. Conscious Governance in its widest sense refers to how any organization is run with conscious awareness. It is what the Board is responsible for in terms of strategic decision making and sustainability of the nonprofit or for-profit organization.
Conscious governance creates a strong future for a nonprofit organization by consciously steering towards a vision and making sure that day-to-day management is always lined up with the organization's strategies. At its core, conscious governance is about conscious leadership.
