An important element of board culture is the agreements board members have about how to hold each other accountable. 

Most boards haven’t created explicit agreements about accountability. So, when there is a clear need to do something about a disengaged or absent board member what happens?  Avoidance, procrastination . . . 

If you have a disengaged or disruptive board member having an accountability process you all have agreed on can go a long way to helping you deal with it.

Too often the default is that board members look to the board chair to solve this. Sometimes that can work but an agreed-upon accountability process—developed by the board as a whole before having to deal with a specific individual—works so much better.

Learn some tips for how to create an accountability process for your board.
