    1. You Won’t Find Her Leading at the Table

      You Won’t Find Her Leading at the Table

      With a nod to Scottish singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé —who broke a sales record this year with her debut album that The Beatles had held for nearly 50 years—we women continue to succeed as natural entrepreneurs and business talent in a wide array of fields and industries, and there is much hard data to back up what success looks like across individual accomplishment in small, middle and major markets.

      Don’t Be the Next  Scandal: Why The Right People, Processes and Tools, and the Board Matter!

      Once again scandals are rocking the nonprofit world and making headlines: allegations of improper use of state funds, personal expenses being mixed in with organizational expenses, embezzlement, and an inability to track where funds have been applied.  Scandals erode the public’s confidence in nonprofits and the right people, processes and tools can help head off any potential problems.  But your organization’s board sets the tone… (Read more)

      My experience on advisory boards, founder of a number of peer groups and a CEO coach shows me how powerful and supportive these resources can be to the individual running the company and the success of the company overall.

    4. The Board’s Role In Managing and Harvesting Intangible Assets: A Strategic, Legal and Operational Guide to Driving Shareholder Value Part 1

      The Board’s Role In Managing and Harvesting Intangible Assets: A Strategic, Legal and Operational Guide to Driving Shareholder Value Part 1

      In a short thirty (30) year period, the ratio of tangible to intangible assets at the average S&P 500 company has shifted from 85%/15% to 15%/85%.  This historic paradigm shift drives new opportunities and puts more pressure on boards and leaders of companies of all sizes and in all industries to ensure that a proactive and effective intangible asset management, protection and harvesting strategy is finally in place and being implemented to drive new market opportunities, durable and profitable revenue streaming and ultimately be a primary source for driving shareholder value.

      Directors,  How Did You Do at Your Annual Meeting?

      As the 2013 Annual General Meeting  season comes to a close, shareholders continue to make their presence known.  Shareholders are taking action: eliminating classified boards, voting against directors who are perceived to be ineffective stewards, such as the museum executive who chaired the risk committee of JP Morgan Chase during the "London whale" scandal, and casting "no" votes on executive pay programs.

      Breaking Through to the Board: What Makes You an Attractive Candidate? Part II

      Related to board recruitment and service are issues of expertise, experience and, ultimately, performance. Although these factors apply to all types of boards, governance news over the last several months highlights problems and players in large, public companies. Serving on the board of a corporate giant can be the capstone of a full executive career, but it can also be a minefield for directors less skilled at weaving trust, accountability and transparency concerns with the obligations of oversight and stewardship.

      Breaking Through to the Board: What Makes You an Attractive Candidate?

      I’m an exercise devotee and I can state without reservation that it’s been a lifelong habit. Part of my habit’s venue is indoors—first at gyms, then at health clubs. I don’t view my workout as a chore or an activity that gets in the way of business; it complements my business. While I spin, cross-train, dance or run the track, I’m also observing, connecting, talking and forming relationships. Rarely do I listen to an entire playlist, and, as my earbuds come out and I begin or continue a conversation, I understand and appreciate the ...

      Don’t Chase After Rock Stars

      Today’s public companies aren’t perfect, but in terms of board recruitment they do provide a worthwhile template for startups seeking to assemble a first class board of directors. The reason for this is that prior bad actors – think Enron, Yahoo and Hewlett-Packard – and subsequent remedial actions – Sarbanes-Oxley and the Dodd-Frank Act – have placed public company boards under tremendous shareholder and regulatory scrutiny to ensure the right individuals are in the boardroom.

      Shareholders get another chance

      It's "proxy season" again for most public companies — called that because most shareholders submit their votes via proxy rather than attend the companies' annual meetings in person. This year's season represents a critical juncture in public company corporate governance because of the 2012 season, which earned the moniker "Shareholder Spring" in some circles. The reference was to the dramatic "Arab Spring"across the Middle East, which was marked by wide-scale protests seeking reform within autocratic governments.

    13. This Board is on Fire!

      This Board is on Fire!

      As Brad and I are putting finishing touches to the book “Startup Boards”, a friend alerted me to something you don’t see often. A “job posting” for a “Board Member” on LinkedIn !

      What more, over a hundred people had applied. “Its on fire” as Linkedin points out. Would a startup board member be recruited via an advertisement? Unlikely. Startup boards are driven by (a) relationships  of lead investor (b) skills and experience of the board member. Many times a VC will say “We should have this person on the board because….”

      How can I have board-level conversations on LinkedIn? - Ask Board Guru™ By: Tracy Houston

      A number of you have asked about the role of LinkedIn in board networking and how to create executive-level self-promotion.  Social media has become the fastest adopted form of media in human history.  While we are still in the early stages of this phenomenon, I do think that dedicated time networking on LinkedIn is well spent. Once I reached the level of posting strategic content based on my expertise in LinkedIn groups (once a week with content from my Board Guru™ eBooks), I had my first client within 90 days in the fourth quarter of 2012.
