Wednesday wisdom: Boards and innovation

This week, I'm launching a new summer (maybe beyond) series, Wednesday Wisdom. In these posts, I will share quotes, from a variety of sources, that have the potential to inspire and inform the work of nonprofit boards. I undoubtedly will offer some insight into why I'm sharing it. But mostly, I'll let the wisdom and the words speak for themselves. Enjoy!
How much time and energy do our boards devote to promoting innovation, particularly when it comes their own performance and expectations for their respective CEOs? How do they model innovative thinking in their own work? 

How does all of that compare to time spent analyzing and sustaining the status quo? 

What might be possible if our boards understood and valued the impact that innovative thinking and action might have on our agencies reaching their full potential - and eventually their missions?
