Improving Board Discussions - II
Creating a Culture of Inquiry

Last week's Chair Post focused on improving your listening skills as a way of improving board communications and your relationship with your Head of School. In this week's post, I continue this theme of improving board discussions with a different angle: creating a culture of inquiry with your Board to facilitate healthy debate.

I share with you a publication from BoardSource, "Culture of Inquiry: Healthy Debate in the Boardroom" by Nancy Axelrod. " In this book, we explain how to create a culture of inquiry within the boardroom — one marked by mutual respect and constructive debate that leads to sound and shared decision making."
