Negotiating board relationships

Negotiating board relationships is a partnership between Governance and Compliance magazine and ICSA Boardroom Apps, which looks at the crucial governance role of the company secretary and the importance of their skilful handling of a complexity of relationships, in the boardroom and beyond.

Background

Through a series of polls, articles and an event, we will be reflecting on the following questions: What skills do company secretaries need to be an effective member of the board? What is the interplay between the secretary’s technical expertise and his or her interpersonal skills? Is one more valuable than the other? And is it possible to build trust with other members of the board and not be drawn into some of the thornier aspects of board politics?
