An Uninspiring Agenda= An Uninspiring Board Meeting

How can you improve your Board Meetings? Improve the Agenda.
  • Make sure the agenda and backup materials are sent to the board a week to two weeks in advance.
  • Highlight major issues that require engagement/decisions by the board. I like to put in bold face
  • Set time limits
  • Avoid reporting of information that they can read. I find using a ‘dashboard’ of key metrics helps here.
