Getting the relationship right between the non-executives and executives was one of biggest topics discussed at Criticaleye’s Non-executive Director Retreat, in association with Santander.
1. Board dynamics often rely on the Chairman and CEO, as well as their relationship with each other
2. Boards should find the right balance between challenging and supporting their executive team
3. Effective NEDs and chairs will demonstrate agility in the face of a changing business model
4. The team should be diverse, each bringing different skillsets to the table
