In college I had a friend who worked at a fitness store. A couple owned the business and one of them was always at the front desk working the cash register. If the store was open, you were sure to see one of the two behind the desk. It was wonderful that they were the face of the store but they never got to leave. Social sector enterprises that have term limits for board members need to be anticipate the rotation of leadership. You cannot always have the same individuals in leadership (some try).
How do you prepare for board rotation? How do you establish a sense of purpose sufficiently enough that a founder might be able to let go? Is you CEO able to go on holiday?
