(Title in Polish - 'Doswiadczenia przewodniczacych rad nadzorczych w spólkach notowanych na GWP (indeks WIG20 i MWIG40). Badania pilotazowe'). This paper is intended to present current research pertaining to the chairman of the board of directors / supervisory board and associated reforms. The characterization made shall serve as a starting point for the presentation of pilot research conducted among the chairmen of the supervisory boards of WIG20 and mWIG40 index companies listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. The purpose of the conducted pilot program was the identification of the roles in which chairmen of the Polish supervisory boards see themselves, the range of their activity, and how they assess collaboration with the remaining members of the board and with the company management. An important dimension of the study was also the learning their opinion on corporate governance, inclusive of the identification of areas that, in their view, require correction. An analysis of the amassed observations indicates that among the main roles of chairman of a Polish supervisory board are being a director of compromise, organizer, coordinator of committee work, and a source of inspiration. Participants in this pilot study also saw the motivating of board members to be continuously involved in board work as an important task. They also thought that the chairman has a responsibility to understand the business in which their company operates. The listed roles fit into the set of roles identified in topical literature.
