Listen to Episode 20:
It’s time for CEOs, C-Suite Executives, and Boards to Engage in New Ways
Be sure to listen to our conversation with Peter R. Gleason, President of the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), and a recognized expert on board leadership and corporate governance.
With increasing complexity and uncertainty in the business environment, there are a number of forces driving what is rapidly becoming a necessary shift in the relationship between CEOs, C-Suite executives, and their Boards of Directors.
The more that all of us who lead companies, large or small, public or private, understand these issues and recommendations from the Board perspective, the more power we’ll have to build the most effective working relationships and raise the performance of our companies.
In this episode, we discuss:
- The forces driving new trends in board-C-Suite relationships, and the advantages of a different kind of Board / C-Suite engagement
- Examples of the new ways in which the Board can add valuable perspective to build more powerful strategies
- Three ideas you can immediately use for strengthening the strategic engagement of the Board and C-Suite in your own company
