101 Boardroom Problems and how to Solve Them
Every board has one main purpose--to make and execute quality decisions. However, even the best board can be derailed by personality clashes or inherent flaws in its system. 101 Boardroom Problems and How to Solve Them offers readers practical tools to prevent and deal with every difficult situation, from collective impatience and indecision to rivalries and conflicts of interest. As a board effectiveness consultant and meeting management expert, Eli Mina has firsthand experience in dealing with the myriad of problems that boards face. Here he shows readers how to identify board dysfunctions and the damage they inflict, deal with boardroom problems with confidence, increase the likelihood of their board achieving the right decisions, minimize or eliminate flawed decisions, and make a board more credible and trustworthy with its community and stakeholders.
Complete with a board effectiveness audit and easy to use forms to evaluate individual members, the Board Chair, and the CEO, and tips on giving and taking feedback, this is the one book that will help eliminate the disputes, disruptions, and problems that can prevent even the most effective board from achieving its mission.
