- CEO of 50+ property management company: I now live from my core and determine how I want to act, be, and live through clarity of communication and expectations. At work, I let go of excessive control, hired staff to support my role as the CEO, delegated responsibility, and learned to hold myself an others accountable. The result has been less stress, more time away from work, and increased clarity on my role and that of my team. Our firm is growing in ways I never thought possible made possible by the combined vision of talented people, all motivated, accountable and working to their potential.
