To women seeking directorships, Smith Orr offers invaluable advice on the work experiences, networks, and career planning approaches that will take you into the boardroom. Her chapter provides guidance for women directors on how to succeed in their role. The last chapter in this section on talent management looks at the hot topic of the board’s role in assessing CEO performance and setting and communicating CEO pay. In “Your Board’s Crucial Role in Aligning CEO Pay and Performance,” Roger Raber outlines five critical principles that must guide your boardroom actions and decisions in this regard.

The only explanation for this failure that I can come to is that these directors had become so complacent because of their confidence in their top management that they believed management would do nothing improper. 7 What he was referring to was the need for directors to be alert to unusual events or data, and to maintain a certain skepticism about anything that seems amiss. Although I still believe this is an apt description of what directors must do under such circumstances, my own experience as a director involved with several different crises has led me to the conclusion that smelling the smoke is just the starting point for effective action in such situations.

To start with, the directors come into the boardroom expecting to be treated as equals. This psychological expectation is rooted in a legal fact. In the laws of all fifty states, including Delaware (the state with the largest number of public incorporations), directors are jointly and severally responsible for all actions their board takes. Anyone who would exercise leadership— whether a formally designated leader or a director asserting himself to lead the board on a particular issue—who ignores the fact that directors expect to be treated as peers, does so at the risk of failing as a leader.
