3. Effective Relations between the Chair and CEO

26th February 2020, 5.30pm – 8.00pm
 

When the CEO-chair relationship is strong, the organisation benefits from having twice as much talent at the top, each playing a distinct leadership role, and each supporting the other.

The board benefits by having a leader whose primary focus is on governance, maintaining ethical standards, and building the board into an effective team capable of managing everything from routine business to major crises. 

The CEO benefits from having a source of wise counsel, and an ally who may devote many hours outside of formal board or committee meetings to consultation with the other directors in service of the CEO’s agenda. 

This session will consider the essential ingredients needed to cultivate strong Chair- CEO relationships. 

  • Role Clarity
  • When the Chair is too strong or too week
  • The making of effective relationships – positive support and challenge
  • The extent of delegated authority and how its use is reported
  • Regular and effective communication that works for you both
     

Work on a chair-CEO relationship, creating a shared view of:

  • Strategic intent: what the charity is intended to do – its mandate, vision, goals, objectives
  • The business and operating model, capacity, strengths and weaknesses
  • The world in which the charity is operating: business environment, competitors, customers, current external forces
  • The future: expected (or possible) forces and events, and how these will impact the future path of the charity
