A good working relationship between board chair and CEO/ED is the key to both a high-performing board and a high performing organization. We coach both parties to this relationship to help them understand themselves, each other and their own stakeholders. Based on our extensive experience of what works – and what doesn’t – we help chairs and CEO/Eds create an effective structure for working together, tailored to their specific situations.
