How to Ace the Corporate Board Seat Interview

In the interview for a board seat, the panel will probe the board’s ability and ways you could add value to their company. Boards are seeking candidates who have the highest level of expertise in their field with a wide-ranging perspective and specialization to complement the existing board members.

You should be prepared to share examples of strategic decisions you have made at the board or in committees. You could be asked questions about your governance and ethical standards.

In addition the panel will inquire about your opinions regarding the company’s strategy and its competitive position as well as your views on the current trends in the industry. Like the other questions, you must be prepared to answer these in a concise, compelling manner that presents the interviewers with an accurate picture of your thoughts.

The interviewers are likely to inquire about your leadership style, how you interact with other people in a team setting, and if there are any potential conflicts of interest could arise in the boardroom. You must be aware of any conflicts that could arise and be able to explain how you will handle them in case in the event of an emergency.

Be prepared for a long vetting process. The board can move in a deliberate, iterative manner. Director searches may be as long as those for CEOs.
