Problem: Board member is divisive



Boards work best when they are working together as a high-performing team. Yet some people tend to be highly political and love to pit “us” against “them.” They call individual board members between meetings to win them over to their side. In general, no board member should be representing any single constituency or position, but all board members should adopt the perspective that they represent all stakeholders and the entire organization. This leaves less room for divisiveness to fester. All board members should strive to be good team players.
