What's the question?

October 19, 2015

So I lied in my last blog post.  There is something new that directors of non-profit organizations can do to add value during disruptive times.

Directors are concerned with fulfilling their fiduciary and strategic roles.  These are still essential to good governance.  During times of change, it is also important to help generate new ideas and ways of thinking about a problem.

How can you bring a fresh perspective to the board?

How can you help frame the question that needs to be answered?

How can you help to make sense of what is happening?

Rather than asking “What’s the problem?” or “What’s the plan?” the question just might be “What’s the question?”
