Rena Henderson Mason is a trusted advisor to mission-driven board and staff leaders, helping them shape their boards for high performance and tell their unique stories. Rena’s approach has grown from experiencing how exceptional boards build high-impact organizations and dysfunctional boards tear them apart. She knows a strategic plan will fail if board and staff leaders do not lead. She trains and coaches boards and leaders on high performance teams, governance, fundraising, recruitment & retention, diversity and inclusion, and succession planning. Her specialty is empowering board and staff leaders to embrace change, push bold ideas and build great teams. She has coached Board Chairs and Executive Directors/CEOs through a range of organizational challenges including growth, leadership transitions, strategic alliances, restructuring, turnaround and crisis.
Some of Rena’s board work resulted in her winning the Business Volunteer of the Year Award from the Arts & Business Council.
