Why Boards Even Matter

Leaders Invest In Themselves, with Mary Hiland

Mary Hiland of Hiland Counsulting talks with us at length about issues in leadership development, especially as they apply to Board Chairs, examining a 2016 study of board chairs. Among the things we discuss:

  • 51% of board chairs reported there was nothing to do to prepare them for board leadership.
  • Mentorship was one thing board chairs reporting wanting more of, in preparation for leadership.
  • Serving as the chair of a committee was helpful towards getting prepared for board chair responsibilities.
  • We should be intentional about learning and development.
