Problem: Board members don’t want to learn



Sometimes people serving on governing boards don’t want to read about how policy-based governance works. Sometimes people on managing boards don’t want to learn about what is changing for other organizations like theirs. Even if the organizational leader buys a book for everybody, they might not read it. Again, expectations are key. Board members should be committed to continuous improvement throughout the organization, including its own governance practices. Policy-based governance has a steep learning curve for new board members. In order to be the best board that they can be for the organization, all board members need to be open to learning and growing in their position.
