How to Complete this Questionnaire
This questionnaire is designed to help you, your board colleagues, and the chief executive assess the chief executive's performance. This questionnaire contains 50 questions. To encourage candor, the questionnaire does not ask for your name. Your confidential responses, along with the responses of your colleagues, will be summarized and shared with the chief executive at a meeting with the board chair, who also chairs the NESEA Compensation Committee.
Each section begins with a brief description of an important area of resonsibility. Please read it and then answer the questions that follow. The questions measure your level of satisfaction with how the chief executive is carrying out various aspects of each responsibility. Check off the number representing the degree to which you are satisfied or not satisfied with the chief executive's performance in each responisibility mentioned. The answer you mark can range on a scale of 1 to 4, with 1 representing 'Very Dissatisfied' and 4 representing 'Very Satisfied'.
1- Very Dissatisfied
4- Very Satisfied
You also have the option of answering 'Not Sure.' If you think a particular question is not applicable, feel free to skip it.
At the conclusion of the assessment are a number of open-ended questions. Please take the time to answer these questions, since your responses will be especially helpful when the board and chief executive look for ways to strengthen the executive's performance and the organization as a whole.
