A Guide for New CEOs

Getting Off on the Right Foot with Your Board

One of the most challenging aspects of any executive’s ascension to the role of Chief Executive Officer is no longer having a boss, but rather a Board of Directors to report to. This requires some different skills and a different approach to getting things done. Even if the new CEO has worked with the board for several years as a senior executive, the transition is critical. It should never be ignored or taken for granted. The first year after a new CEO’s appointment is an opportunity to start the CEO/Board relationship off on the right foot, avoiding pitfalls and setting a tone for a constructive board/ management relationship that can yield significant benefits for years to come.

The corporate secretary is in a unique position to guide a new CEO on this important topic – and this Webcast will help you to offer constructive insights and helpful advice that can make a big difference. This session is two-hours long.
