Worrying about how to manage change keeps charity chief executives awake at night more than any other subject.
The revelation is contained in Polishing Performance, a report by the NCVO into the issues and concerns on the minds of voluntary sector leaders.
Every single chief executive said managing change and dealing with rapid growth, such as the delivery of public services, is a concern. But the most pressing area for chairs is board communication.
However, there were some areas of overlap. Both chief executives and chairs highlighted the lack of an effective board, the reputation of the charity and fear of failure.
The NCVO called for tailored support to address the disparate needs of chief executives and chairs in the future.
