The Board met tonight in a fairly informal session to overhaul its stated goals, which were last revised in 2005. No members of the public or press attended, and the session was recorded but not webcast. The discussion is a look into the heart of the belief systems and management approaches of the individual board members and into the personal and leadership dynamics on the Board. It says more about where we are, how we got here and where we're going than any other meeting we'll have. At the pace we set, we'll need 3-4 more meetings before arriving at a final new set of goals.
One thought I had tonight:
It is dangerous to try to write down every good thing, and fear that we will neglect something that is good by not naming it.
