We Are Family
September 28, 2020
Hosted by Chris Elias
Joseph Basile is the President of Catania Oils, one of the Northeast’s largest processors and packers of plant-based oils including olive, vegetable, blended and specialty oils. They are a fourth generation family business, something that makes them rather unique. With many family businesses failing in either the second or third generation, Joe's company continues to go strong and grow. So, how do they do it? By instilling a family environment and values in a modern day corporation. During this show, we will discuss what has made and kept them strong and share lessons that can benefit any business or corporate leader.
Monday at 8 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel/Sunday at 10 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Influencers Channel
Thomas Edison once said that vision without execution is hallucination. Many leaders have a great vision, but struggle to achieve it due to lack of execution. In order to succeed, an organization must have both a defined culture and the processes in place to support and drive achievement. Often, companies and the people within them, must transform in many ways to ensure execution happens and results are optimized.
During this show, Chris Elias will discuss these real-life issues with business leaders and transformative experts. Together, they will share stories of successes, failures, and the leadership practices that will benefit you the most. Transformative Experts with Chris Elias is broadcast live every Monday at 8 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Business Channel and replays on Sundays at 10 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Influencers Channel.
