About this event
As Chair, building and maintaining a successful relationship with your Chief Executive is a key part of the role. But it’s not always a simple task. Each relationship is complex, dynamic and unique and it needs time, energy and effort to make it a success.
This session will look at what is needed at key stages in the Chair-Chief Executive relationship including appraising your Chief Executive. Within this interactive session AOC will provide insight and tips on how to build a successful relationship with your Chief Executive as well as pointers for when things go wrong. The event will cover:
- Navigating the boundaries between the role of Chair and Executive
- Setting objectives, appraisals and performance management
- Providing a balance between appropriate challenge and support to get the best from one another
- Examples and case studies of successful Chair/Chief Executive relationships and tips for when things aren’t working.
This session will be held over the online video platform, Zoom, and will include the use of breakout rooms to facilitate group discussion.
