“I want PASSIONATE ADVOCATES.”
In preparing to facilitate and lead a Board eXperience for an absolutely amazing group of business and community leaders for Junior Achievement in Orlando, I was going over the goals for the day (it was an Annual ‘Retreat’ that was 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. held at Disney World.) The President (Gary B., an experienced and extremely talented For Impact leader) said it this way,
“It’s very simple. I’m looking to have the members of my Board be PASSIONATE ADVOCATES for what we do at Junior Achievement.”
I added the CHAMPIONS. If you think about these three BIG WORDS:
CHAMPIONS, PASSIONATE, ADVOCATES…
it certainly creates the ‘Perfect Profile‘ of a committed, (on) board member.
