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:

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.
