Let’s increase our chances of success, by carefully selecting Board members with significant corporate business experience.
Studies show that the more accomplished a director is in business achievement, the more likely that director will engage in discussions regarding critical business issues.
Sealaska should have a strong board comprised of experienced business executives who can provide substantial leadership. If our board has individuals with low business acumen, it will hamper our ability to manage the business and run profitably.
The key is, we should value business experience more highly than non-business experience in measuring the capability of the board.
The greater the business acumen of the board’s directors, the more likely they are to raise the right issues, challenge conventional thinking and exercise leadership (especially in crisis situations).
