About The Board and the CEO

Good relationships lie at the heart of every successful organization. Yet no relationship is more important—or more challenging—to navigate than the one between the board and the CEO.

In this practical and concise book, Peter and David draw from their years of experience to equip other board members and organizational leaders to enter into a impactful, life-giving partnership.

With this pivotal relationship in place, both individuals and the organizations they serve can truly flourish.

  1. I would love to purchase this book but I return to Nigeria on the 24th. I don’t see it in Ebook and when I go to purchase the hard copy it doesn’t tell me estimated shipping. Can you help?

  2. Mission Drift was required reading for our Board of Directors Annual Meeting in 2014. We now open and close our meetings with a reading of our Primary Purpose, one of many lessons we learned from Mission Drift. The book was critical in helping us focus on the need to stay true to our calling and be the ministry that God originally birthed. Looking forward to seeing what The Board and the CEO will teach us. As a CEO (or Chief Climbing Officer, as we call it at Climbing For Christ), I know I have a LOT to learn. Thank you, Peter and David.
