Problem: Board chair facilitates poorly



Sometimes board members don’t listen well and over talk each other frequently. This does not lead to high-quality conversation. One of the roles of the board chair is to facilitate the conversations and manage the agenda so each item receives enough attention. But what if the board chair is weak in this area? One solution is to have the board chair appoint another board member with these skills to lead the meetings. The board chair is still in authority, but this allows him or her to participate in the discussion without worrying about facilitating it.
