ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's reflections on the essence of governance in a public or nonprofit organization. He mentions the lessons that he learned of working closely with the governing body of a major educational institution that served him well in the governance arena. He mentions that he felt the importance of team effort in the process of making strategic and policy-level decisions wherein collaboration and support are of great importance. He cites that lack of rules in governance gives the opportunity to become creative in making governance rules but it also serves as a barrier to successful school leadership.
