Patience, and listening. Don't try to impress them, they are already working to size you up. Take your time, be yourself, and don't try to impress.

As a new CIO/CISO you should get a good understanding of the corporate strategy and goals. Engage with board members and try to get a feel of what are their concerns.  Try to build a relationship to open a way for communication. This will help the new CIO/CISO to get an understanding of the board's concerns and can address them.
