Executive Networking With Tenant Advisory Group

Every month, Tenant Advisory Group hosts an Executives Event to provide an opportunity for Chicago business leaders to build new, meaningful connections and discuss topics relevant to running a business.

During January’s Executives Luncheon, attendees were prompted with the question: “How do you get it all done? What advice or tips do you have for staying ahead of the game?”

Here are a few of the lessons shared in response:

Rick Jordan, CEO of ReachOut Technology – 1. Accept where you’re at so you can go towards the future. 2. Lose negative people. 3. Live healthy. 4. Integrate. No such thing as work life balance. Have one life and integrate it all. Bring kids everywhere. 5. No back up plan. Either go all in or don’t do it. If you don’t love what you do, change it up.

Stu Grubbs, CEO of Lightstream – Focus on doing the 3 things a CEO should be doing: 1. Setting vision. 2. Finding great people. 3. Not running out of money. Then get out of the way of the people you’ve hired and trained. Time blocking is big. Bullet drilling – methodology for writing a to-do list.

John Basso, Sr. Partner at Jesser, Ravid, Jason, Basso & Farber – I love to-do lists and will update at the end of every day. Don’t allow yourself to be interrupted.
