    If ..............
    (you want to be a good non-executive director)
    With apologies to Rudyard Kipling

    If you can challenge and ask the killer question
    And your interests have no conflict, nor are open to suggestion
    If you can have a disciplined approach to attendance
    And believe in the tenets of good governance

    If you can exercise good judgement and excel at communication
    And are committed to the mission for the organisation
    If you know when to talk and when to listen
    And can act as an ambassador and promote the vision

    If you can articulate your views in a constructive manner
    And remember with your time to be a good planner
    If you can handle accountability whilst managing risk
    And carry out your duties and be brisk

    If you can be outward looking and a good advocate
    And show loyalty to company, not to those who nominate
    If you can draw on lessons you have learned
    And have the capacity to forgive when you are spurned

    If you can be honest, open and transparent without seam
    And define the strategy to deliver set objectives with the team
    If you can help embed those principles we hold dear
    And make difficult decisions without favour or fear

    If you can govern from on high but never lose the common touch
    And count everyone the same but none too much
    If you can do all this and still find time for fun
    Then one day youÂ’ll be a good director, my son
