Amplified by evolving demands in governance, risk management, investment, and growth, the need to make the right selection for your board is a critical component to achieving organizational potential. Individuals must satisfy defined criteria in expertise while representing the many populations and perspectives served by the business as both an employer and market participant.
Does the candidate provide the right background and business experience to guide governance and performance? Do they bring material insight to the operations and strategic direction of the enterprise?
Does the candidate balance an independent mindset, a commitment to shareholder stewardship, and a collaborative approach to effectively address risks and opportunities?
Is the candidate’s character beyond reproach, strongly grounded by honesty, integrity, and a sense of accountability?
Why does the candidate want to serve on your board? What is the depth of their knowledge and what do they, uniquely, bring to the table?
Does the candidate demonstrate understanding of the role in all its components, alongside the ability to make and own challenging corporate decisions?
Does the candidate fully realize the risks and responsibilities that come with serving on your board? Are they capable of uncovering and mitigating enterprise risk?
