Helping Boards Tackle New Markets and Business Models

With business disruption becoming the norm, boards can’t afford to not include discussions on strategy and innovation on their agendas Frontier Communications matches each of its 10 board members with a senior leader in a two-year, rotating mentorship program, according to its former executive chairman, Maggie Wilderotter. ‘I put this program in place specifically for the board to get to know the senior leadership of the company, and for the senior leaders to get to know the board members,’ she explains. ‘The only rules are that [participants] have to get together at least two to three times a year outside of board meetings, preferably over a meal so it’s more relaxed. Our senior leaders love the program, and so do our board members.’
