REALIZE Board Training

The Paso del Norte Health Foundation, in partnership with the United Way of El Paso County, is ensuring the success of nonprofit organizations that serve our communities. Through workshops, training and summits, the REALIZE Board Training is assuring all nonprofit board of directors are fully prepared to undertake their critical responsibilities.

With research and pilot trainings to develop a strong REALIZE experience, the Health Foundation developed a custom board leadership program. Through the help of thoughtful consultants, the REALIZE Board Training Program emerged to help change good leaders into “transformational leaders” for the benefit of the region’s health.

Individuals who participate in the training program will learn to:

  • Acquire skills, behaviors, and competencies necessary to positively impact the population
  • Manage board meetings (agendas, board minutes and more)
  • Facilitate board dialogue
  • Build a strong and healthy relationship with CEOs
  • Understand legal and ethical roles for boards

The REALIZE Board Training Program is an affiliated grant of the REALIZE Executive Leadership Initiative.
