Positioning for a Board Role | Ep. 62

How do I know what I have to offer a board? What should I include in my board resume? What do boards care about from board candidates? How do I sell myself to boards?

Continuing on from last week’s article, I share a process that you can follow to answer these, and similar, questions you have as you embark on your board journey. I explain how to effectively research and unearth the common/universal attributes desired from all board candidates, and the specific expertise, experience, skills, knowledge, and/or other attributes desired from board candidates on a particular board or at a particular time. I then teach you how to incorporate this information into your board resume (with examples) and into your personal development plan.

At the end, you will have a clear path forward on your board journey.
