We guarantee that once you've read this book, you'll want to give a copy to every member of your board. That's a promise!
Boardroom Verities is a celebration of trusteeship. It looks at why men and women are willing to join boards and give their time, compassion, and commitment.
This book presents eighty time-tested truths that govern board membership. They appear in a series of brief chapters, based on interviews with over 100 men and women who are trustees. Some of these Directors are famous names you will quickly recognize. Others are average men and women, much like the fifteen million across the country who serve on the boards of organizations just like yours.
Verities covers virtually every aspect of what it takes to have a healthy, vital board and effective trustee. It describes how to maintain each trustee's focus on the passion of the cause. There are nine characteristics of a motivated and disciplined board, and some of the consequential factors that make an institution great.
Boardroom Verities is a must-have for yourself and your organization. This book is signed by the author.
