For the Board Seeker… This is the first practical guide written specifically to help board-ready leaders and executives gain the knowledge, resources, and confidence to shape their successful personal “onboarding” program.
Assess the experience you’ve gained that makes you valuable to a board (there’s more than you think). Shape this into a powerful outreach portfolio, including a board resume, online image, and personal pitch. Gain the allies and mentors you’ll need (especially your boss), and build a targeted board network.
Learn step-by-step how board searches really happen, and how to master each stage. Prepare for the board interview and vetting process, and get ready for your first board meeting.
