Good post, Kevin, as usual.

Certainly heads have to be responsible to their boards, and boards have to keep themselves in that role of hiring and evaluating. One thing that I've noticed with many heads is that they seem nervous and almost fearful of the board; it's understandable, particularly if their are trustees who overstep their bounds. But I think it's really important, especially for newly-appointed heads, to remember that the board desperately wants to see the HOS succeed wildly and thus need to be embraced.
