Emma Knights OBE, Chief Executive is joined by long-time friend of NGA, Andy Buck, to talk about the vital relationship between the chair of the board and the executive leader, whether that be the head teacher of a school or a chief executive of a trust, and how that relationship can be supportive, challenging and secure.

Emma and Andy explore some of the key habits that help to build a rapport between the board and the senior leadership team. They discuss how to create conversations that are both supportive and challenging and that ask the right questions.
