Since COVID, board and leadership teams have had to make most senior hires in enterprise tech entirely without in-person meetings. For example, HIEC has appointed tens of executives and board directors worldwide into enterprise tech without any in-person meetings, including CEOs and board members. Who would have ever thought that a few months ago?
How do you build relationships with your new Exco/Board? How do you assess your own leadership team when you can’t meet them over coffee/wine/dinner? How do you collect all the data points you need to make an impact after your 90 days?
Tim Robson and Anita Sands join me on Tech Talks Daily to talk about all this and more. We also explore how to create belonging for new hires and the organizations generally, so they culturally stick and build trust even when working remotely.
