Here’s my bottom line: No one person … even a board member … takes precedence over the health of the organization.
Poor performers – lousy ones – don’t get to stay. And that includes board members!
Serving on a board is serious business. Treat it accordingly!
So yes, you might have to fire a lousy board member.
But make sure you enable well first. Make sure your CEO is an expert in governance. And fire only when everything else has been done well first.
