I’m always curious – what makes someone a really exceptional board director? In today’s environment, board knowledge and understanding is a given. Knowing governance, strategy, the financials? Yes, you should.
Are you willing to challenge yourself to develop as a leader? Most people are committed to developing their technical expertise to maximise potential (think about the years spent at university!)
Have you ever done something that has surprised you? Perhaps you met with a mentor that you’d been hoping to talk to. Or presented a speech for the first time.
