Think QUICK for Better Board Members

Best Practices, CEO Corner : Article

advisory-board-300x199I’ve written before about how Boards need to be willing to drop bad members from the Board. Deadwood can kill a Board.  But what makes a good Board member? Think QUICK. 

Questions: The best Board members have the courage to ask the hard questions of staff and their fellow Board members.

Understanding: Board members don’t have to be subject matter experts, but they must take the time to develop an understanding of the organization and its mission.

Integrity: It’s critical that Board members have integrity to do what’s best for the organization as a whole—even if it may be detrimental to themselves or their own company.

Commitment: There needs to be a commitment to invest time—and at times money—in the success of the organization.

Keeps Current: A good board member will engage in learning and development to stay current on both the mission of the organization and governance.
