A coach and mentor may not be the same thing, but they both play a powerful role in a person’s life, whether they’re trying to get their first full-fledged job or a spot on a board of directors. Are you ready to reach your goals?
Women make upward of 75% of purchasing decisions in a household. Yet, they’re still wildly underrepresented at the board level. Yet, the 12 largest companies in the USA don’t have a single woman on their board of directors. Private boards tend to have even fewer women. The key takeaway? Things are changing for the better, but we’ve still got a way to go.
Hiring a coach to assist your board of directors, particularly in a private business that’s making the shift to a formal board set up, can make the process easier and improve the results overall. Look at this process as an opportunity for growth and advancement, and optimize the situation in any way possible.
