A simple article here, but with a good core message. In challenging times, the differnece between success and failure is the people around you. In today's VUCA world, boards and ExCos need trust. There's some good tips here in how to help create it but fundamentally it's a values fit (you need to identify that in your top team), good conversations (including conflict and challenge) and frequent feedback (both positive and negative, given and accepted freely) so you know you're all on track. Get the fundamental behaviours right and the activity becomes much easier to navigate.
