Why it’s important
There are no quick fixes or silver bullets for turning around bad board member performance. The good news is there are answers. The first line of defense is excellent recruitment but not every process is perfect.
There will come a time when someone has to be thanked and released. Your mission deserves the gift of excellence and that only comes with a willingness to support greatness and retain superior board members by keeping them in good company.
Firing Lousy Board Members…and Helping the Others Succeed is a candid resource manual for the board, committee, chair and executive staff who want to make changes in how their organizations are governed. Author Simone Joyaux addresses common fears and reasons why we have trouble firing board members who don’t meet expectations.
This book not only covers how to thank and release a board member but also thoroughly explores many meaningful strategies for avoiding that crossroad altogether. Recruitment, defining board member tasks and monitoring performance are among the welcome topics for steering clear of firing too often.
