Description:

This book is about the Truth of the Board Experience. It's about what they want. It's about the most satisfying board experiences as told by board members across three continents Of all the people interviewed, certain messages were consistent across the board. No matter the type of board or the sophistication of the organization, the leaders had a lot in common. Throughout the pages of this book, readers will find nine myths exposed as well as the truths shared, all from the hearts and souls of giving, caring, and successful people. The points were much simpler than expected, but the whole of their message is much greater than the sum of its parts.
