7 Questions with Emilia Adamovich

Name: Emilia Adamovich

Current title: Board member

Current organisation: global business referral network

founder and financial backer

.

1. What have you found most challenging as a board member?

the hiring process. I think today companies are better off setting up their own training and certifying process instead of hiring from colleges and universities. The education is failing the business world.

2. How did you become a board member? Can you please briefly tell the story?

Was already a consultant to most of my clients. They offered employment, we settled on board positions, especially clients, I ended up investing in to help keep them afloat.

3. How do you structure your work days from waking up to going to sleep?

Some people think I work 24/ 7. In reality, I enjoy what I do and say I play a game of real monopoly, and even use my own money.

4. What's the most recent significant leadership lesson you've learned?

That the new generation enters college ready to conquer the world, and they graduate afraid to say hello. Young people need mentoring.

5. What are some of the keys to doing governance well in a organisation?

Forget what is taught in school. Regardless of the size of a business, treat it like a small family run business. Treat your staff, like you would treat your family.

6. How do you differentiate between the role of board member and the roles of CEO or executive team member of a organisation?

Simple, CEo level reports to board and Board has to give proper guidance.

7. What is one meaningful story that comes to mind from your time as a board member so far?

The better your board and the more they earn from proper results, the less you have to work. Try to make everyone a superstar better than you.
