    068: Create a board accountability process

    068: Create a board accountability process

    This episode is with Mary.

    An important element of board culture is agreements board members have about how to hold each other accountable.  

    Most boards haven’t created explicit agreements about accountability. So, when there is a clear need to do something about a disengaged or absent board member what happens?  Avoidance, procrastination . . .

    If you have a disruptive board member having an accountability process you all have agreed on can go a long way to helping you deal with it.
