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).”

Part-time Retirement – The Atlantic

In preparation for our new book on retirement coming out this fall, we continue to find more and more fascinating ways that individuals and companies are re-creating retirement.

This article in The Atlantic focuses on the wisdom of part-time retirement, specifically a program at the National Institutes of Health that allows older employees to stay on at 20 hours per week, retaining their expertise and providing a gentle on-ramp to long, costly retirements.

“The biggest piece is that we get to retain talent that would otherwise be leaving,” says Philip Lenowitz, the agency’s former deputy director of the Office of Human Resources, who also participates in the part-time retiree work program. The program also allows NIH workers to ease into retirement. “It’s a way to find out how to transition from not putting on a suit and tie every day,” Lenowitz adds.
