Firing lousy board members

July 12, 2018

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.
