Two Skill Sets That All Effective Boards Possess

Episode Summary

When it comes to understanding the skill sets boards need to be effective, who better to consult than TK Kerstetter, a person who has worked with corporate directors for 25 years and sat on a public company board himself. Ty Francis of Ethisphere reprises his role as host and draws on Kerstetter’s experience to discuss which skills prove to be the most productive in the boardroom.

Kerstetter explains how boards contribute to setting the tone at the top, and how good boards can take a step back and make sure they are balancing major constituencies. Kerstetter also discusses why boards should mandate that time be set aside to discuss strategy and planning—a small commitment that makes a good board great.
