As the year’s end approaches, it is a great time to reflect on what you have accomplished and which WSG opportunities you will leverage next year. Where is our firm benefitting? Where are our professionals participating? What can we continue to do and improve upon to increment overall value?
WSG’s previous Chairman, Sergio Michelsen, laid out an ambitious plan for the organization throughout his Chairmanship including: alliance partnerships; mobile meeting app; practice group meetings; manage referrals and more. Having successfully implemented the overall objectives, it may have left members wondering what part they play in creating individual success. So, we created a quick member checklist that can be easily accomplished and evaluated. Go over this list and pat yourself on the back for the ones that are marked off. As for the ones that have an empty box next to them…
