Are you ready for your board interview?

By Sheila Ronning, CEO & Founder of Women in the Boardroom

You’ve gotten the call or email.  You are a possible candidate for a corporate board. Very exciting!  But now what? What are they going to ask me? What should I ask them? What do I need to do before I talk with them?

 

They might want to speak with you that day so you need to prepare yourself ahead of time. Here are just a few questions you should ask them:

 

WHAT IS THE VISION, STRATEGY & PLAN?

– What is the 3 to 5 year plan for the company?

– What is the strategic planning process?

– Is the potential for risk included in the strategic planning?

– Is there a succession plan for the CEO, board and senior staff?

 

WHY ARE YOU INTERESTED IN ME AS A DIRECTOR?  

– Am I being considered because of my skill-set?

– What is the expectation in terms of that and is there anybody else who has that skill-set on the board?

– Am I additive?
