Getting the Most from Your Board


I’ve worked with many boards leading strategic planning retreats, professional development seminars, and grand challenge discussions. Some boards are high-functioning. Others are not.

Through my work, I’ve identified four areas in which the most high-functioning boards excel, and each of the four areas is the responsibility of the organization’s CEO.

If you are a CEO looking to get the most out of your board be sure to:

  1. Educate your board
  2. Identify external resources your board can connect you with
  3. Build robust relationships at the top
  4. Introduce strategy
