In all that we do, the goal is to be truly great. To add value in multiple streams, to improve the lives of those around us, and to be excellent in every endeavor. As new and aspiring board directors, this should be our approach to the boardroom. To be a driven leader that constantly adds value while making the people around you better. What does this look like in the board setting? How can we translate these ideals and principles into the boardroom?

Today, Julie Daum joins the conversation to help us solve these issues. Julie has over two decades of experience in board services with Spencer Stuart. She’s spent her career filtering through board candidates and knows what makes a great board director.

In today’s episode, Julie provides expert insights and tips for us as aspiring board directors on how to make ourselves great. She helps us understand what traits and characteristics are most vital to board success and also gives us insights from the recruiting side of things. We discuss all of these topics and more on this episode of Boardroom Bound.
