As we think about the seasons of the year, we can relate that concept to the seasons of change every board member goes through on a board of directors. In spring everything is fresh and new, and we plant and nurture our gardens to grow. Similarly, new board members bring fresh perspectives to our boardrooms and we give them guidance to grow in their roles.
You may have a wonderful board of directors – nice people who are friendly, show up to meetings, get along with each other, and respect the CEO. These are all good things. However, do you have people with the right knowledge, skills, and abilities to lead your organization to success?
