July's Governance & Leadership magazine is looking at board dysfunction and includes a feature from the Charity Commission itself on how to spot the signs of dysfunctionality happening on your board. It also includes an article on how to learn from the failures of others, which includes common themes that lead charities to fail, and one which has tips for avoiding conflict in the boardroom.
Elsewhere in the magazine are opinion peices from John Williams on why leading a high functioning board requires a good chair to grasp some sometimes painful nettles, and from Mike Hagan, a service-user trustee of the Advocacy Project, who says that they bring a unique perspective and challenge to charity boards.
Other articles include those on human resources, including one from Mencap on their take on the sleep-in shift back-pay row, and on how to set a pay strategy for your charity,.
