    1. Board or Bored?

      Board or Bored?

      As Baby Boomers contemplate retirement there is the inevitable question being contemplated-“what do I do next”?

      A recent CNBC segment referred to 2012 retirement planning as the “no huddle offense”.  Essentially there is a need to accelerate not only the economic preparation for retirement: but also the determinants as to how one would spend their time.

      Activists Seek Short-Term Gain, Not Long-Term Value

      Activist investors are making waves in the stock market, but their game has changed.

    4. The Role of the Board is Pretty Darn Clear

      The Role of the Board is Pretty Darn Clear

      Your board does corporate governance. That’s your board’s purpose.

      What is corporate governance? The process whereby a group of people (typically called a board) ensure the health and effectiveness of the organization.

      Corporate governance is a group process, a collective act. Corporate governance only happens when the board is together at its meetings.

      Every organization needs a job description for its board. And the job description is pretty much the same for every single nonprofit. And the job or role of the board is, essentially, the same for for-profit corporations, too.

    5. George Clooney & Sony: The Big Guns Work in Peacetime Too

      George Clooney & Sony: The Big Guns Work in Peacetime Too

      It’s not every day that a Hollywood celebrity wades into a fight between a major corporation and an activist hedge fund mogul. When one does get involved in matters of finance, it’s usually to back an activist agenda aimed at remediating labor abuses, alleviating environmental harm, or ending contributions to geopolitical strife. Last week, however, George Clooney stepped up big time for Sony management in its battle against activist investor Daniel Loeb, who controls a seven percent stake in the company and wants it to sell its entertainment arm.

      Activist Investors:  A Roar or a Bark?

      When it comes to activist investors, though, the situation is less clear-cut. On Wall Street, this breed of hedge-fund manager engenders extreme reactions. Some lionize them as intrepid champions of shareholders’ rights in the face of corporate ineptitude. Others accuse them of terrier-like aggression, snapping at executives’ heels with short-term demands that end up harming companies...

      You Won’t Find Her Leading at the Table

      With a nod to Scottish singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé —who broke a sales record this year with her debut album that The Beatles had held for nearly 50 years—we women continue to succeed as natural entrepreneurs and business talent in a wide array of fields and industries, and there is much hard data to back up what success looks like across individual accomplishment in small, middle and major markets.

      Don’t Be the Next  Scandal: Why The Right People, Processes and Tools, and the Board Matter!

      Harness the Power

      A daughter who had minimal business experience bought her family-owned manufacturing company from her sibling. She sought my advice. Oh, where to begin…

       

      My experience on advisory boards, founder of a number of peer groups and a CEO coach shows me how powerful and supportive these resources can be to the individual running the company and the success of the company overall.

      The Board’s Role In Managing and Harvesting Intangible Assets: A Strategic, Legal and Operational Guide to Driving Shareholder Value Part 1

      Directors,  How Did You Do at Your Annual Meeting?

      As the 2013 Annual General Meeting  season comes to a close, shareholders continue to make their presence known.  Shareholders are taking action: eliminating classified boards, voting against directors who are perceived to be ineffective stewards, such as the museum executive who chaired the risk committee of JP Morgan Chase during the "London whale" scandal, and casting "no" votes on executive pay programs.
