Episode in a Tweet: Great board leaders not only have great ideas, but they also help CEOs learn, grow and become better executives.
Quick Background: I met Bob Arciniaga through the YPO Colorado chapter several years ago and have always appreciated his perspective on executive leadership and how CEOS should develop its board of directors. During this episode, Bob and I discuss why CEOs should look at their boards as a strategic advantage and build a board with the right expertise to accelerate growth.
Bob also shares how his new company Boardology helps CEOs create high-impact boards by measuring engagement and alignment. Bob tells us about the three ways CEOs and boards miss the mark when building out their board and explains why all boards should have a thorough evaluation process to measure impact.
I hope you enjoy this fun and enlightening conversation with Bob; I am sure you’ll walk away with insights on how boards are run.
