8 Steps to Landing a Board Role Series

Welcome to our eighth and final step of the 8 steps to landing a board role guide: Always Be Learning.

I hope you’ve watched the other videos and completed the exercises in the guide. All of the steps are laid out intentionally as they all progressively build on each other to create your personal board search ecosystem.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for taking interest in the 8 Steps to Landing a Board Role guide and in these videos. I have certainly learned a lot, and I hope you have too. I also hope that the guide and videos have given you confidence to pursue your board goals. Please share your experiences working through the guide and these videos with me – simply send me a reply email from any one of my weekly emails to you.

Not surprisingly, I have written a few articles about director development, education and the need for ongoing learning as a board member. In fact adult education is a passion of mine. I believe that we can do anything we want so long as we take the time to learn.

I encourage you to read through these articles to get some inspiration and ideas for your learning and development curriculum.
