Learn with Aileron: The 5Cs of High Performing Boards | Aileron

When it comes to a Board of Advisors, these five qualities separate the exasperating from the exceptional. Does your board have them?

A cohesive, high-functioning Board of Advisors can be an invaluable source of wisdom, accountability, and support for a business owner. But if the board is ineffective, misaligned, or poorly managed, it can consume a business owner’s time and energy — and return nothing but stress and frustration.

Aileron’s 5Cs Model for Leading a High Performing Board is an integrated model that exposes the essential factors that empower a board to deliver on its promise of being an irreplaceable resource to the business owner.

As you’re reviewing the five qualities of high performing boards, consider how well your board performs in each of these areas.
