Episode 44 | Start Your Board Journey

So you want to get on a board, but you’re not sure how to start your board journey. ‘How do I get on a board’ is a common question that I receive. To help you start out, I have three things for you to do to make your journey into the boardroom smart, smooth, and direct.

If you are looking to put some serious efforts into your 2022 board goals, consider enrolling into Break into the Boardroom: it’s a fully online self-paced course taking you through the steps to land a board role. Enrolment includes a personal one-to-one coaching call with me where we can leverage off the work you have done in the course to support you to achieve your board goal(s). You can find that course here.

Episode 45 | Reboot your Board Goals

Creating and executing an intentional networking strategy that is natural and isn’t wholly reliant on you having to meet people face-to-face, may be what it takes to reboot your board search strategy. I also want you to not have to rely solely on responding to board advertisements as your primary tactic to securing a board seat. It’s certainly one way to get into the boardroom but is something to be used in combination with a networking strategy.
