What should the board education curriculum be? Of course, start with what is causing trouble right now. Even with immediate attention to topics causing current difficulty, there should be a long-term plan for board development. This plan can be drawn up by the CEO, the board chair or the board itself. Consistency is critical. Figure out which philosophy of board operation the organization wishes to follow and work on the needed knowledge, skills and attitudes to make that a success. Don't flip mindlessly across different approaches. Don't get sucked into the trendy topics: Colors one year; Seven Effective Habits the next. Build a trusted relationship with one trainer for the whole curriculum, not a random selection of low bidders or people handy to your meeting sites. The board time is valuable; don't waste it.
