Over the last 15 years I have contributed – either as chairman, non-executive board member or as external advisor – to a variety of companies and organizations
Boards of Directors
A non-executive board member is not just there to advise. He/she is co-responsible for the actions of the company.
So it’s crucial to be in sync with the purpose and the values of the organization. There has to be trust and a clear understanding of the role of the board vs. the shareholders and the management.
This requires continuous interaction among board members and with stakeholders.
It goes beyond the formal regular board meetings.
Fulfilling a board mandate is intense. It’s one of the most beautiful ways to support leaders and organizations in reaching their sustainable goals.
