If your board is:

  • Micromanaging rather than addressing strategic issues
  • Providing fundraising wish lists rather than helping develop and execute achievable strategies
  • Holding meetings that are rambling and routine rather than engaged and focused
  • Re-analyzing issues rather than supporting committee recommendations
  • Second guessing the Executive Director rather than working collaboratively to develop strategies
  • Avoiding fundraising obligations
  • Present but unengaged

Michael Davidson, Board Coach

I have solutions.
I will assist you in achieving your goals!

My mission is to guide Boards of Directors to translate the passion that first engaged them into developing the board management structures that will support that passion and enable effective partnerships with staff leadership.

I have successfully coached the boards of more than 150 New York City area organizations. I bring over 30 years experience in nonprofit management as a board chair, manager and consultant;  bringing  perspectives from careers in Education, Anthropology and Law.
