The problem in successfully matching non-profit, private, and small-cap public company board needs with the right candidate, is the agility and forward-thinking required in a highly fragmented process. So the “advice” from many existing sources are unhelpful.
Executives who are successful in securing the right board seat need to:
Master the notoriously idiosyncratic governance ecosystem.
Understand/embrace the unique boardroom challenges that organizations face.
Build/communicate personal brands that are fine-tuned for that realm.
In our experience, executives eager to serve on boards are often woefully undereducated on the changing competitive landscape and rigors required to embrace unique boardroom challenges.
