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. 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.
