How often have we been frustrated with our Board members for not making a Board meeting, showing up late to the meeting, or not being prepared for the meeting despite the fact that you sent them 10 documents to review ahead of time?
I know I have. Repeatedly. Ahem!
And then a couple months ago, I was that Board members running late to a (undisclosed) Board meeting with a folder full of documents I had been sent ahead of time but I had not reviewed them. I was late and not prepared.
That’s when it clicked! I understood why my Board members run late, aren’t prepared or miss the meeting all together.
