I have invited my committee members to be seated around my round table ! There is no leader, no subcommittee, no secretary taking notes (to make sure I dont forget) just a common goal to help me grow in my creativity.
Frankly, I don't want any of my members to leave because they challenge my thinking and behavior. Am I always comfortable with our board meetings? No, and we could from time to time being of such nobility, draw swords and have a quick battle of the will, but I rule! :-)

I just need a bigger castle!
