Many years back I hosted a dinner at my home for members of my team and their spouses. My investment office at the time was really taking off. As a leader, I had to grow fast, and I was trying to understand how people in the office felt about their jobs and the office environment. Seated to my left at the dining table was the wife of one of my company’s executives. She was a dynamic conversationalist, and we talked about everything from kids and family to travel and our favorite books. At one point long into the discussion during our [...]

I enjoy traveling. My work demands it, but I’ve discovered ways to make it less stressful and more productive. At my last estimate, I fly about 400 hours a year, mostly between New York, Los Angeles, Indonesia (to visit my resort, Nihiwatu) and Paris to visit friends.
