Nonprofit boardroom: What transpires within

Life and deadlines battled blogging this week, and life is winning. Rather than completely drop off the face of the earth here, I'd like to offer a small teaser from a book that is stimulating my thinking about governance effectiveness and boardroom dynamics. Expect more, soon!

A board can help a good CEO perform better - but only if it can gel as a group and exercise its collective judgment. The biggest problem for corporate* boards is not who is on the board but what transpires there."

 -- Ram Charan

*While corporate boards are the focus of the quote and book, the essence of this quote, and what I will be sharing later,apply to the nonprofit governance setting.
