Kathleen Pushor – Into the Boardroom: How to Get Your First Seat on a Corporate Board/Women in the Boardroom series-Part III

This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Kathleen Pushor. The original live interview was 6/19/15.

Mysterious and powerful, for decades America’s boardrooms have remained closed to all but a handful of director “in the club.” Now, former Fortune 500 executives Dorothy Light and Kathleen Pushor reveal an insider’s look at what goes on in the boardroom and how you can get there. CEOs and directors of some of America’s most prestigious corporations share their stories of what really goes on behind closed doors, who gets selected to sit on a board and who doesn’t, and why being a part of this influential group should be the goal of today’s up and coming executives, professionals, and community leaders.

Kathleen Pushor is a seasoned executive coach and corporate director with expertise in marketing and the distribution of information technology-related products and services. Her company, Inner Capital, serves the developmental needs of select business and community leaders throughout the arc of their career.

Dorothy Light is founder of Alden Enterprises, is a writer, consultant and motivational speaker.

Into the Boardroom was written to introduce senior executives in corporations, entrepreneurs in small and mid-size companies, members of the professions, and those who serve our communities or teach at our universities, to the concepts of corporate governance and the process by which new directors are selected. This book can encourage a new generation of leaders to serve and prepare them to participate fully as they take their first seat on a corporate board.

Corporate America needs to take a long, hard look at the significance of effective corporate governance and the individuals in whom they have placed this important trust. The financial press appears ready to keep up the pressure, and the headlines, until they do. The result will be an ongoing need for talented, experienced individuals with the integrity and willingness to accept a seat at the table. Currently, more than 60,000 positions exist for the directors of companies traded on the NYSE, NASDAQ and AMEX exchanges. At least another 20,000 seats exist around the tables of America’s largest privately held companies. Who occupies these seats? What do they do? How were they selected? Could one of them be you? Let’s find out!

Pushor’s company, Inner Capital, serves the developmental needs of select business and community leaders throughout the arc of their career. Offering the targeted coaching and consulting services required to sustain three distinct phases of leadership: emergence, achievement, and transition.

She also chairs the Compensation Committee of the board and serve as a member of the Nominating and Governance committee for Insight Enterprises, Inc..
