Mid-Summer Networking With Tenant Advisory Group

Rick Gray, CEO, TalentRise: I did not do enough homework on the people driving the revenue of the business. I went too hard too fast and needed to step back and rebuild trust. I wanted to change the mentality of “my score matters” to “our score matters.”
Morrie Elstein, Vice President, Cendrowski Corporate Advisors: I didn’t hire the right partners, and I needed to make leadership changes, as the wrong people were selected. I also would have done more thorough background checks.
At the Executives Luncheon, guests were asked what they see as “the biggest threat to their industry and how they plan to overcome it.” Here are some of the responses:
Josh Strauss: Robotic advisors and passive investing on your own are the biggest threats. If there is any complication, there needs to be a specialized advisor. Passive investing works well in a growing market.
Joanna Sobran: The biggest threat is ourselves. We need to find a way to merge some of the various business lines to focus momentum and so they become really good at everything they do.
Thank you to all who attended!
