Episode Description

Are you the type of boss that micromanages and hovers over your people? Perhaps you are the kind of parent who believes that every moment of your child’s time should be filled with an activity. What are the pressures imposed upon you by your leadership style or that of others who impact your life? Join me and my guests Claire M. S. Meade, Second Vice President, Financial Planning Specialist at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, and Kim Gladis, President & CEO at CorePerformX Advisory Group, to discuss your views and concerns on managing your children’s lives. Are we over-scheduling them, setting our expectations of them too high without their input, hovering over them, or just letting them be? We’ll compare and contrast these elements with what we do at the office with the people who report to us. See you On The Air.
