Long Term

Rehearsing Your Future

Here is what I believe. The board is responsible for the mission, vision and over-arching plans of your organization. Those elected to the board answer a call to be stewards of the organization’s purpose, health and effectiveness. Board members must remember the weight and responsibility of the moral duty they bear, the work they oversee and the talents entrusted to them. The board has an essential role in organizational impact.

Instead of Resolutions—Try Reflection

Tis’ the season for resolutions. Well, not quite. It’s a tad too early for most of us. The truth of the matter is, in a manner similar to our last minute Christmas scurry, we often feel compelled to cobble together a quick list of New Year’s Resolutions. Call it resolution peer pressure, the bandwagon of good intentions or the guilt of things left undone. We “rush to resolution” sometime between December 30th and January 2nd.
