A Board is A Board, is A Board?

An organization’s board of directors shoulders a huge responsibility. Although not responsible for, and hopefully not involved in, the day-to-day operations of your organization, they still carry the weight of your success. In difficult times, whether due to economic factors or in-house management challenges, the board should be your sounding board, a RESOURCE of knowledge, experience and connections. Take a look at this article by Lucy P. Marcus in Harvard Business Review; it is an excellent summation of the critical importance of your board: “If we all rise to the challenge, then we can help address and overcome our collective and deep sense of unease. By leading through example, boards will help organizations face the sense of instability with aplomb, and emerge stronger, more self-assured, resilient and capable.”
