THOUGHTS ON LEADERSHIP: THE MINDSET OF NEUTRALITY

By Gino Blefari

This week my travels find me at home, completing my weekly Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Presidents Meeting and typical WIG calls on Monday. I spent Tuesday planning and sending out handwritten notes then on Wednesday, presented 4DX Tune-up + Mindset Leadership Amid Covid-19 to the team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties, led by the great leadership of CEO Candace Adams. And today, I spent an hour with the members of the Intero Academy.

One of my preferred ways to recharge is by watching my favorite sports teams compete. Sports has so many parallels to business—it’s why I so often write about inspiring NFL coaches or top players on this blog. In business, your goal is to win and in sports, your goal is to win.

You lead them when necessary and you ensure every member of your family finds success, just as you would with a business or sports team.

Thoughts on Leadership: Rethinking Your Perspective

By Gino Blefari

This week my travels find me in Irvine, CA and the trip to Southern California has afforded me a healthy dose of perspective. On Tuesday morning, I moderated a lively Book REview session—if you don’t know, Book REview is our quarterly online discussion of a business book—then sat in meetings with our national REthink Council for the next two days.

For me, reading (and listening) to books is a way of life. I’m never NOT starting a new book. Why? Because new eyes see old things in new ways. Reading about the perspectives of others helps broaden, sharpen and focus your own. Our book for this week’s Book REview was The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson, all about small changes (I call them small wins) you can make to ultimately drive big results. Olson also emphasizes the importance of maintaining a positive mindset from the minute you wake up so that lasting success is less of an uncertainty and more of an inevitability.

#13 Thoughts on Leadership: The Power of Knowledge

By Gino Blefari

Knowledge is an important component of leadership. If we’re diligent about it, knowledge is an ever-changing, evolving thing, allowing us to continually improve, progress and grow.

Recently, I was in Washington, D.C. at the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals® (NAHREP) White House Briefing. The meeting proved an exciting opportunity to learn about the latest trends affecting the Hispanic population and how Latino preferences and buying power will shape—and reshape—the landscape of our national real estate market.

NAHREP®, cofounded by Gary Acosta and Ernie Reyes, is a passionate organization made from dedicated professionals across the country, proud champions of homeownership within the Hispanic community and The Voice For Hispanic Real Estate®. I’m honored to serve on the NAHREP® Corporate Board of Governors and help advance this cause.
