Welcome to the first installment of IBJ’s new video feature, “Leading Questions: Wisdom from the Corner
Every week, we’ll sit down with one of central Indiana’s most respected bosses and talk shop about the characteristics of an effective head honcho. A wide variety of local CEOs and other business bigwigs will reveal the events and lessons that shaped their approaches to leadership, as well as the personal quirks and habits that separated them from the pack.
We’ll kick off the feature this week with Jeff Henry (see below), managing principal for Cassidy Turley, the city’s largest commercial real estate brokerage firm. With the post-recession real estate market still very much in flux, Henry holds forth on managing in a crisis, as well as the inspiration he draws from Hoosier basketball icon John Wooden.
