WHAT IS THE
BOARDROOM BLUEPRINT FRAMEWORK?
In all areas of my work, I find that human mind is drawn to clarity. As we build our board careers, we need to make it easy for others to see why we want to serve and how we will make a difference on a board.
I know how it feels to seek a board role and struggle to get a foot in the door. Seven years ago, I sought opportunities to make an impact and accelerate my development, but I kept encountering resistance.
Fortunately, I stuck with it and learned valuable lessons. I’ve secured four paid board roles and two seats on high-profile non-profit boards. Along the way, I’ve learned that clarity in our career-building process and our messaging is incredibly important. The Boardroom Blueprint framework is the product of my experiences and the hundreds of hours I’ve spent coaching other directors.
There are five major parts to the framework underlying my work:
- Understanding: Master the foundations of your new environment
- Messaging: Position your board offer so it’s easy for others to understand what you bring to the table
- Efficient search: Learn how successful directors raise their hand for new opportunities
- Aced interviews: Prepare rigorously to make a compelling case for your candidacy
- A strong start: Hit the ground running right from your first board meeting
In the past, I have worked one-on-one with aspiring directors. Now I support leaders via weekly blog posts and my online training program. And you can always book a 20-minute phone call with me to explore the next step in your career progression. I offer these consultations at no charge as a way of paying forward all of the support I’ve received as a developing director.
I hope you’ll mobilize your talent and ideas to make a positive difference on boards that need you right now. You don’t need to spin your wheels wondering how others find plum opportunities.
I’ve helped dozens of corporate directors launch and build their board careers. I’d love to help you do the same. Take the BoardScore Assessment to gauge your readiness.
