Advisory Board

 Advisory Board

Beginning in 2022 we will begin scouting a trusted group of advisors is an incredibly important part of building our business and nonprofit that benefits committees. We have boards. One will be an advisory board, I like to call the honorary advisory committee (HAC), and the second is our official legal board of directors (BOD). The HAC team will be much easier and quicker to assemble and as a benefit, does not have a legal tethering like a board of directors does, and as such it is a lower risk way to attract super qualified candidates that will help to enhance and accelerate our nonprofit.

We are looking for people that complement our own skill sets, who would bring different areas of expertise: marketing, sales, operations, finance, human resources or technology. Ideally you would meet with this group three to four times per year for one-two hours. Usually, these meetings are on a conference call, yet in person if possible is significantly more powerful.  The HAC members will help main mission is to help the Cognitive Institute of Dallas as volunteers to sit on our HAC.  Compensation will dinners, drinks and gratitude! The whole idea of the HAC is to keep it light and informal with little drama. Keep it big picture and strategic. Make it both interesting and engaging. Most importantly, well try and choose people who would be most interested in the betterment of our business and have a duty to the business rather than a personal vested interest in protecting their individual shareholdings in our business.  Look for one- to two-year commitments, that meet four to six times per year to review overall strategy and to approve the company direction and budgets. It is not the job of the board to run the company and we won’t allow this to happen. But is will be fun and engaging leading to more leadership opportunities to enhance your career goals

Look for open calls.

It’s natural for parents to advise their children to pursue the safe, predictable, and practical route.  Parents do this because they don’t want their children to experience uncertainty or discomfort.  This is the good path. But is it the best path?  In most cases, no. The best path is usually the one that’s full of challenges, obstacles, and disappointments.

Winning parents understand that it’s more important to build a relationship with their child than it is to find innovative ways to control her behavior.  Just because your child obeys your instructions doesn’t mean that you’re a world-class parent. It just means that your child is obedient.  If this obedience comes at the cost of your parent-child relationship, the tradeoff might not be worth it.

Parents often think that they’re responsible for their children.  Responsible for their academic performance, for their behavior, for their social etiquette.  But no—parents are only responsible to their children. Parents are responsible to their children by giving them love and support and a good home environment.  Children are responsible for their own lives. If your child misbehaves in school, she’s the one who will be punished, not you. Successful parents recognize that they aren’t responsible for their children, so these parents don’t carry a burden that they were never meant to carry anyway.
