Board Basics (How)

The Pre-Read

This might be the single most important item you send to your board BEFORE the meeting. The pre-read sets the stage on what your current thinking is on the companies performance and challenges you are facing. It also gives insights into where you want the board to really focus for the meeting.
Call out key items you want their help digging into.
If you are introducing a new thesis around an expansion plan, or a new way of thinking around a revenue approach, you can highlight this in the pre-read and ask your board to poke holes in it, and think through key questions to discuss around the topic in the board meeting.
