I work at a non-profit in California, where the entire team of 6 has become increasingly unhappy with our Director. She has been around for 13 years, is an old dog who refuses to learn new tricks, earns a six-figure salary, and hinders the work of us all in the organization. For example, she is short-sighted and would charge a sponsor exorbitant amounts for access to our contacts, instead of building strategic partnership. Her technology skills are vastly outdated.
While she's at the top of the organization, our board of directors isn't happy with her performance. They're afraid to let her go for fear she'll sue.
How do we get her to quit, preferably without another six-figure severance package?
