Communicate Well With Your Board

“The skill I would like to improve has to do with managing the board and our investors,” says Tan Le, CEO of Emotiv, a San Francisco company that is creating innovative gaming technology. “I think the board and the relationship that you have with yours is very important. Most of my time is spent building my company, not just my product. A lot of that has to do with team building, the culture of the company, trust, and good relations internally and externally. One of our challenges has been that most of the members of my board are located overseas. So we don’t have as many people on the ground here, feeling the vibe at the company. Maintaining the communication channels with the board, across that distance, is very important and something I would like to work on.”
