Cathy Allen featured in Directors & Boards Magazine

DirectorsandBoardsReboot Partner Cathy Allen was featured in a recent article in Directors and Boards Magazine sharing her wisdom on how to succeed as a women corporate board member- specifically, how to “demystify” the other board members right at the beginning of your involvement.  Cathy describes her process:

 “Before I even get to a first meeting, I talk to every single board member as well as the general counsel and the senior executives in the company. I want to know not just how the company operates, but also the politics of the board, so that I’ll have a sense of who people are and how they coalesce. Then, during that first board meeting, it’s best not to say a lot; rather, listen and watch the body language and interactions among directors. By the second meeting, you’re ready to participate because you understand the board on three levels: intellectual (what’s being talked about), emotional (what are the hotspots or issues), and interest (who’s really engaged).”

We Reboot Partners have nothing against children – we have them ourselves!  But we can’t help but agree with this recent article by Carol Hymowitz in Bloomburg Business uncovering the fact that many parents are risking their retirement savings by supporting their adult children more than is financially viable:

With real wages stagnant and unemployment among those age 16 to 24 running above 12 percent, large numbers of households continue to dole out cash to children no longer in school, covering rent, cell phones, cars, and vacations… “The more boomers put out for adult kids, the less they can put aside for themselves, which is scary as they live longer and need savings to last them into their 80s and 90s.”
