One would thing having a PhD in psych makes one infallible.
He knows what goes on the board. People have written to him about it. I used to think like you do. Why wouldn't he distance himself from them? Then I realized it makes perfect sense from a business standpoint. At one time, you could get great peer advice from the board (ie. in the old days) so why go to the good doctor for help? However, if the board is nasty and cliquish, you'd go to him for help so their antics actually drive people to his online course and phone consults and retreats.
