Bolster & Diversify Your Leadership Skills by Serving on a Non-Profit Board

** As published on AESC Bluesteps

Serving on a non-profit board is a full body exercise in governance. Board members contribute far more than just their votes. They fill a vital leadership role that engages both their subject matter expertise and their leadership skills.

A board member’s role is to advance their organization’s mission and vision. They do so by understanding and championing the needs and values of all stakeholders who interplay with the organization. To serve their institution well, board members must be good listeners, versatile professionals, and big-picture thinkers.

It’s a thrill and a challenge to steer an organization as a member of a leadership team. Each board member has to deftly strategize as it relates to his or her particular area of expertise but also play the larger game of governance, acting as the generalist the organization needs.

If you’re considering serving on a non-profit board, here’s what you need to know as you pursue that ambition.

How To Transition Into A New Industry

Just as CEOs lead companies, we each assumed the chief executive role for our own careers the minute we stepped out into the working world. In that capacity, we have to protect and nurture our interests and prospects, just like the big guys do.

This is no small task. We enact this work in a landscape of constant, fast-paced change. To remain engaged and relevant players, companies have to be hip to the evolutionary pulse that drives growth in their industries.

Great leaders
 
 

People who design and construct things are a different breed. There is no factory, no store, and they often work out in the open and all kinds of weather. Cutting corners in construction entails risk. Misjudging one task could mean threatening the safety of people or the integrity of the project. Success hinges on the decisions and actions of the team and each team requires leadership.

There are many levels of leadership in construction, from the field crew to the executive suite. Identifying great leaders is pivotal to the success of an organization. Following are qualities in every effective leader.

Private Equity & Venture Capital

PEVC

Many believe robust investment opportunities are the linchpin to a healthy, growing economy. Industries such as high tech, life science, renewable energy and clean technology maintain alluring growth potential. Prevailing interest in BRIC countries now includes Africa as the new hotspot, while Europe and China stagnate. In recent years the market has seen steady quarter-over-quarter increase in deal activity. Likewise, the high price of doing deals in a seller’s market is attracting interest in long-hold funds. Yet at the bottom line, if private equity and venture capital are key factors to a strong economy, organizations must bank on the right leaders to be enterprising difference-makers.
