Building the Board-CEO Relationship 301 Overview

The first part of the course shares the five most common barriers to a healthy Board/CEO relationship. You may be able to identify with one or more of them from your board experience.
The second describes that while we understand relationships that we use every day, we may still benefit from understanding the components of relationships that will help us to design the Board/CEO relationship.
