From ex-HP CEO Carly Fiorina’s new memoir Tough Choices:
“Some board members’ behavior was amateurish and immature. Some didnâ€™t do their homework. Some had fixed opinions on certain
topics and no opinion at all on others. Some members were bored and
distracted during important agenda items like leadership development or
corporate social responsibility.”
Does this really comes as a surprise to Fiorina? It sounds like every real-world board in which I’ever been involved. Did she really think that people wouldn’t tune out during subjects like “corporate social responsibility”? C’mon Carly.
