And, dear friends, make sure that "your" priorities are at least in concert with the Board's priorities. You can help shape the Board's agenda but it's more than likely that when you arrive as a new head the trustees will already have a list of their top three or four areas that require your time, talent and attention.

This is assuming you have a good team in place who are themselves skilled in their respective areas. Delegate wisely!
