Reboot 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.

In a world that has gone from 9-5 to 24/7 in a generation, our ability to lead a professionally productive yet reflective life is increasingly challenged. A time of professional disengagement offered by a sabbatical is invaluable. The chance to cultivate personal interests and family and friends free of the demands of the office and Blackberry leads to a richer life and thereby a refreshed perspective when returning to work. These four writers understand this and offer wise counsel. Take their advice and take a sabbatical. –Peter H. Darrow, Senior Counsel, Cleary Gottlieb Steen and Hamilton
