Recruitment/talent Acquisition, Career Counselling
You have given the background of the situation you are facing, but haven't mentioned anything about what is the Management's take on this issue. Since the concerned individuals are senior-level persons, the Directors' views will be very important in the options available to you. Is the management aware of this situation & it's impact at all?
It might also help to give a better perspective to the members who want to suggest solutions if you provide the domain/sector details in which your company operates--manufacturing, IT, etc.

I, truly, understand your concern.
But, as an HR Manger, we need to deal with these problems tactfully.
All I would suggest you to do is sit down with them individually and have their inputs on the following:
1. Their "Key Focus / Result Areas".
2. Reason(s) for not handling a team / being a part of it.
- Whether they intend to shed their responsibility off?
- Do they lack "Team handling" skills?
3. Are they looking for a "Profile transfer" or any other alternative?
4. Are they really uncomfortable working with their Juniors? Why?
Try having as much inputs as possible and I am sure you will come out with a desired solution.
