Creating a 21st century board means making significant transitions towards more future-focused leadership behaviors and practices.
Rethinking both how new directors are recruited and successfully retained can provide a progressive focus to a director search. Candidates whose backgrounds speak to these areas will ultimately bring a honed perspective for competitive advantage.
Here are a few areas to consider when thinking about your next board member:
Does the candidate have a track record in growth situations?
Does the candidate have experience with innovative cultures?
Does the candidate have foresight into new markets while appreciating legacy positions?
What are your thoughts on creating strategies for the progressive boardroom of the future?
