Every month, Tenant Advisory Group hosts an Executives Luncheon to provide an opportunity for Chicago business leaders to build new, meaningful connections and discuss topics relevant to running a business.
During May’s Executives Luncheon, attendees were prompted with two questions: “What’s the toughest part of running your business and how do you manage through it?” Here are a few of the lessons shared in response:
Joe Blandford, President, Greatline Communications- The hardest thing was to figure out how to be more demanding of people and be a stronger leader. Be bold in asking for what you want. Hoping that other people will know exactly what to do never works.
Phillip Barreda, Executive VP, CMSDC- It’s all about relationships at the end of the day. Not about selling.
Erryn Cobb, CEO & Founder, Fetch IMC- If it’s not a process, it’s a problem.
