How the Best Board Directors Stay Involved

How the Best Board Directors Stay Involved | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

“Ask me for anything,” Napoleon Bonaparte once remarked, “but time.” Board members today don’t have that luxury either. Directors remain under pressure from activist investors and other constituents, regulation is becoming more demanding, and businesses are growing more complex. McKinsey research suggests that the most effective directors are meeting these challenges by spending twice as many days a year on board activities as other directors do.

Advancement in digital technologies has disrupted everything, including leadership styles, according to Barry Libert, Jerry Wind and Megan Beck Fenley. Employees want more ownership rather than to follow instruction; customers want to participate in the marketing and development process; and leaders are finding that open and agile organizations are able to maneuver more effectively than organizations where “all insight and direction comes from the top. In short, the autocratic Commander, whether brilliant or misguided, just won’t cut it anymore.

When we allow external forces to be the sole adjudicators of what is ethical, we create ethical problems.

Yet, few business owners have personal mentors, and even fewer use proven leadership blueprints to successfully provide quality leadership to their business.

My own personal list of people I look to in my professional life for inspiration, superb ideas and sound reasoning is extensive,  but I thought I would share just a few who have been consistently influential.
