Isabelle Nüssli

All too often, the relationships between Chairpersons and CEOs are filled with tension, affecting organizations as a whole. To create a more productive atmosphere, senior leaders need to identify the source of their issues and build a new bond based on trust and respect.

After living through her own toxic Chairperson/CEO scenario, Isabelle Nüssli decided to uncover the roots behind these complicated interactions. Drawing on studies in business, law, and psychology, as well as interviews with more than seventy Chairpersons and CEOs, Cockfighting presents Isabelle’s remarkable findings on the conscious and unconscious drivers of conflict and their intensifiers, offering insight into how factors such as role models, family structures, and birth order can cause antagonism, and providing invaluable tools for increasing self-awareness, overcoming differences, and facilitating collaboration.

It’s time to break through the classic Chairperson/CEO conflict and build a new partnership that empowers productivity, innovation, and success.
