I’ve talked before about the partnership between a board and the chief staff executive.
Historically, there are two main reasons why a CEO is relieved of their duty. A financial issue or when one gets crossways with the board or a board member.
Playing an equal role in the nominating committee process gives you the opportunity to fill your board with members who are:
- Committed to the organization
- Support the mission
- Understand the relationship between the board and chief staff executive
- Allows the chief staff executive to implement the board’s policy without interference
Not being a full participant in the nominating process is something that needs to be addressed immediately.
Don’t you want to play a part in picking your next boss?
