Leading boards effectively requires great wisdom and sensitivity. Chairpersons tasked with the roles of providing leadership, guidance and oversight, contribute immensely to the success or downfall of the organisation.
Effectively executing this role requires a delicate touch as well as a firm hand. Leading boards is quite unlike leading other teams: meetings are infrequent, limiting the opportunities for bonding; the routines are often stilted and rigid; and fellow directors are all accomplished individuals. Doing the chairperson’s job well, rarely brings personal credit, as that is usually shared between the board and management; doing it badly, however, can lead to a dramatic loss of reputation as the leader of the board tends to shoulder most of the blame.
