Richard LeBlanc, author, professor and board governance guru, is put on the hot seat to discuss key steps to creating a great board—and ways investors can gauge how effective their board really is. LeBlanc and host TK Kerstetter talk about board leadership, board assessments, board recruitment and composition.

Kerstetter also quizzes LeBlanc about his book, Inside The Boardroom: How Boards Really Work And The Coming Revolution In Corporate Governance. The two discuss his predictions and whether a governance revolution he projected in 2005 actually transpired. LeBlanc is also the author of a book entitled The Handbook of Board Governance, which is a comprehensive overview of corporate governance and what it’s like to serve on a board today.
