Director DevelopmentDirector and the Board. What is expected of you
Becoming a director is no longer an honour. The position is full of duties and responsibilities that even long-serving directors may be unaware of. In truth, no one teaches you to be a director. It is a bit like parenting, you can read the books, listen to the voice of experience, but nothing will prepare you for that exciting challenge.
Assembling a team of highly paid, intelligent, and hard-working directors onto a Board, does not guarantee that the Board will operate efficiently. Like families, Boards can often be dysfunctional and fail in their overall remit.
