DO’S: WHAT Is An Advisory Board GOOD For Anyway!?

.

Wordle-Meetings-Gust MEES

.

Well, the name itself explains it, isn’t it!? It is a board with people WHO were chosen to give advice and THEIR experience, their professional knowledge to persons which degrees and diplomas might even be higher, BUT WHO don’t have these competencies as the members of the Advisory Board have! THE Advisory Board might ALSO have higher degrees, competencies and diplomas as from those where they are in (Government, schools, EDUcation…).

Those chosen people in the Advisory board give advice for a BETTER way as it is actually, otherwise they wouldn’t have any existence right, isn’t it!? 😉

Learn more:

THE most IMPORTANT is that the Director Board CAN LISTEN to the members of the Advisory Board and NOT take constructive criticism personal by straight answering on an opponent view, NOR to see these persons as enemies!

An Advisory Board is an enrichment for any organization as collective intelligence is getting used to GO for BETTER!

sharing-iconTo get feedback, you have to be open to feedback. This sounds obvious, but it’s very easy for people to ignore feedback or not ask for it at all. To be truly open to feedback, you have to acknowledge the possibility that you’re wrong or that a better solution exists. The key is to view feedback as additive instead of competitive.

“The key is to look at the viewpoints being offered, in any successful feedback group, as additive, not competitive. A competitive approach measures other ideas against your own, turning the discussion into a debate to be won or lost. An additive approach, on the other hand, starts with the understanding that each participant contributes something (even if it’s only an idea that fuels the discussion—and ultimately doesn’t work).”

The above mentioned is ALSO valuable for any sort of meetings.

There are commercial programs existing to organize meetings, check a non exhaustive list below, please:

And WHAT about Online Video Conferencing programs?

DON’TS In An Advisory Board!

.

SO… as mentioned above these people are respected people for THEIR competencies, experience, innovative minds and valuable insights! WHEN those people are getting treated as 12 years old persons, thus meaning: by Pedagogy based meetings instead of Andragogy based meetings they will feel offended!

.

AND when YOU make reports where invited members from the “Advisory Board” (adults and seniors) get marked (like in school) as “Not Excused“, “Excused“, “Present” in the reports, OH MY GOD!!! 

Here below such a (fictive) report WHO shows the “presences“, names and companies are hidden, ONLY marked by color (organizer, members…).

.

excused-present

.

In the above fictive example the following colors mean:

  • RED is regular members of the Advisory Board
  • Orange-Brown are members of the Organization
  • Green are PRESENT members of the Advisory Board

When YOU have a look on the above fictive sheet you will remark that ONLY 6 members from the Advisory Board from a total of 32 members were present and 4 members of the Directory Board. This means a presence of ONLY 12.5%! In such a case as demonstrated above with the fictive presences sheet, the responsible people of the Directory Board should ask themselves WHAT is the reason of such a minor presences!?

The Board Directory members should be OPEN to these advice and NOT take it personal, nor being stubborn by NOT <===> listening and understanding them. <===> They should be OPEN for questioning the WHY these advice to engage discussions and let people express it also…

DON’T make an enemy attitude AGAINST persons which gave the organization constructive criticism, NOR let them show YOUR enemy attitude when YOU meet them outside in private life! DON’T consider THEM as YOUR employees which YOU want to control and dominate, they are FREE and OUT of YOUR control anyway!

 Recommendations

programmerman-animatedThe above mentioned is resulting as my experience in 40 years in the workforce/labor and also in managing positions where I was present in more than 100 meetings , without counting the meetings and congresses which I was leading in my sports career as president of a sports federation and president of a club. I followed special courses about:
.
  • Conflict Management
  • Sales Management
  • How to lead a team
  • In German: Kommunikation, Sich selbst und Andere fĂŒhren, KonfliktbewĂ€ltigung (Firma Klaer-Werk in Trier [DE]) von DIPL. PSYCH. Alex HENNING  und DIPL. PSYCH. Stefan LEHNHOFF (2001)
    • Communication
    • Listening to others
    • Empathy
    • Not creating underdogs
    • Win-Win situation

 

sharing-iconIt is STRONGLY recommended that persons WHO hold the meetings, especially the main speaker and responsible one visit courses about the how-to of holding meetings and especially courses about “Conflict Management” to ensure a professional behavior in such meetings. Problems could get avoided before they occur through <===> Proactive THINKing <===>!

Learn more:

I advise ALSO, this is nearly a MUST in the 21st Century while using ICT, THE letter “C” <===> Communication:

  • To create a discussion platform (Forum) where the members of  the “Advisory Board” can discuss together…
  • To create a curation platform where the members of the “Advisory Board” can curate content which will be of benefit for the Director Board
  • Consider to make an “Advisory Board” where active and passive people from the workforce/labor are ALSO integrated. Especially retired persons as they can speak FREE without fear as NOT anymore in the system 😉

Collaboration and Coaching

WHAT Is Digital CitizenShip?

Well, there is a lot of different views! WE will explore WHAT could be THE BEST way to teach and to learn about Digital CitizenShip (hashtag on Twitter is #digcit) AND THEREFORE WE will use an infographic from Nancy WHITE ===> You can follow her on Twitter  <===. Here WE go, check the infographic below, please.
.
Digital-Citizenship-infographic-620x965

.

WHEN WE have a deep look on it WE will see ALSO ===> Digital Security <=== which I will define here as ===> Cyber Security <=== where ===> Internet Safety  <=== is included as well in it.

I prefer using only one word for NOT making people dizzy ===> Cyber Security <===, later, after learning about, YOU will automatically know what is belonging to it…

We will use ALSO Social Media twitter to communicate with OTHERS, here below an example on how this could be done:.

Being a GOOD () is THE 1st STEP forward to a with !

By being a GOOD () WE have a ===> <=== resulting from OUR ===> <===

2/n Thus meaning: WE are able to ===> <=== by the BIG DATA & knowing WHAT is GOOD & BAD! => 3/n

=> 3/n Through daily reading of OUR bookmarked articles WE will get informed about WHAT’S going on in the world! THE “I” in

4/n WE will see ALSO WHAT turned WRONG & WE will from the => mistakes of OTHERS <=, that’s called =>

5/n Doing THE SAME mistakes AGAIN is , a stage higher THEN ===> <===, WE will avoid that 😉

=> 6/n WE will use the letter “C” in ==> <== for OUR with OUR ==> <==

=> 7/n WE have ===> <=== for OUR ===> <=== as it is OUR ===> <=== which WE will protect!

=> 8/n THAT of of WE will acquire by about ===> AND <===

=> 9/n Concerning ===> #CyberSecurity <===: WE will install #Protection #Software on #AnyOS #AnyDevice for OUR own protection AND to protect ALSO OUR #Community as WE know THAT any infected device can infect OTHERS!

=> 10/n If WE DON’T have installed any #Protection #software on #AnyDevice #AnyOS one day WE will be on trouble! See PIC 😉

As WE know NOW know about WHAT ===> Digital Citizen Ship <=== is about, my idea about the How-To students could learn it through THEIR OWN responsibility by creating an ===> Advisory Board <=== on each school where THEY run it.

Digital Citizen Ship | Advisory Board Run By Students

community-jpegWhat would be BETTER than using practice to learn about a difficult task such as ===> Digital Citizen Ship <===, isn’t it!? Well, how to do this? It’s a question which I was asking myself a lot and after ===> Deep THINKing <=== I got this idea: let the students, learners, create themselves an ===> Advisory Board <=== on each school where THEY learn the practice, where THEY have their OWN voice and where THEY HELP each other to resolve problems (Cyber Bullying…), to get NEW ideas, to learn together, to take their OWN ===> Responsibility <===, where they learn to communicate, organizing meetings with parents and teachers to discuss…

How could that be done, organized?

Well, WHY NOT getting students, learners from any age of the school being part of such an ===> Advisory Board <===, together with one adult person who is present as a coach, not controlling them but guiding them. THEY should meat at least once a week and also taking care of THEIR school community (learning responsibility) by remembering THEM about the ===> #FSCD <===, THE “Friday Security Check Day“, where people learn to get the right reflexes about looking for “Updates” of installed software, checking the browsers if they are updated, helping to create a ===> Coding Club <===, helping to create a ===> Maker Space <===, and a lot more… Use YOUR creativity to find some more ideas 😉

Some ideas for inspiration:
