Require meaningful director evaluations.

"Many boards today have internal evaluations conducted by the chairman or lead director. Although these evaluations are well-intentioned, directors may be unwilling to disclose perceived weaknesses to the person most responsible for the effective functioning of the board. A Corporate Governance 2.0 approach would engage an independent third party to design a process and then conduct the reviews. The process would include grading directors on various company-specific attributes so that they and their contributions were evaluated in a relevant way." -- from "Governance 2.0", by Guhan Subramanian Harvard Business Review, March 2015
