Abstract

Separation of the Non-Executive Chairman role from the Chief Executive role continues to gain global acceptance. Prescriptions for separating these roles are most entirely focused on policy and structural matters. Little attention has been focused upon the interpersonal dynamics which determine the initial acceptance of the separation and its ongoing success. Pivotal Questions focuses upon a Board’s interpersonal dynamics crucial to the role separation. Pivotal Questions supplies guided questions that are the catalysis to dialogue that if not considered, might derail the intended success of the separation.
