Boat or bus – how does your board of directors ride? Is yours an engaged board or is it a constant challenge to get them to contribute more than just turning up for board meetings? This is a constant issue raised by nonprofit CEOs and EDs. What’s the solution? Most importantly do you have the right people on board and do they understand their roles and responsibilities?
Do you have the courage to lead or does self-imposed fear restrict your willingness to do so?
According to one of my heroes, Nelson Mandela “Fear and courage are brothers. I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
