      The Other Side of the Equation:  Questions you Must ask When Considering a Board Opportunity

      The Cost to Shareholders of Picking the Wrong CEOs is a Stunning $112 Billion a Each Year

      As the public debates the merits of the recent corporate tax cuts, most people are dangerously oblivious to a bigger and in the long run costlier problem: that of picking the wrong CEOs to lead companies in the first place.

But a CEO chosen to lead a business impacts its entire bottom line and the livelihood and well-being of every employee and their families...

      Snap CEO Spiegel's $637 Million Bonus Shows Just How Broken Executive Compensation Is
      • Snap recently disclosed that it paid CEO Evan Spiegel $638 million last year — mostly in the form of a gigantic stock award.
      • The award was worth more than any other since at least 2011, bigger even than the jumbo award Apple gave Tim Cook when he took over from Steve Jobs as CEO.
