This a pretty easy read which covers the following three topics:
1. You Support The Board’s Decision Despite Your Personal Objections
2. Taking A Firm Stand: What If The Board Is Making A Mistake?
3. I’m Still Angry And Disappointed Over A Decision The Board Has Made. What Can I Do?
But in so doing it’s a good reminder, with some helpful hints, as to what to do in each of those three topics.
I like the quote from governance advisor, Ram Charan: “Listening isn’t just hearing; it requires the willingness to entertain other viewpoints — especially opposing ones.”
He strikes at what is so often the heart of the problem – I’ve got my view and don’t let a better view prevail.
Another helpful quote contained in the post is: “If we were to go this way, what would our organization be like in 5 years, ten years and twenty years?”
Another good read to enjoy.
