Executive sessions can enhance and strengthen board culture. Negative or exaggerated assumptions are often made when an executive session shows up on a board agenda and, even more so, if one is announced during a regular board meeting without advance notice.
Board leadership succession planning is a critical aspect of effective governance. Selecting a board chair is one of the most important decisions a board and a CEO will make, and committing to serve in that leadership role is one of the most important decisions a trustee will make.
