Leading in Tough Times: Bill Galipeau, BKM Capital Partners

Throughout the month of August, Connect CRE is running a series titled “Leading in Tough Times.” We’ve asked leaders around the U.S. and across the commercial real estate spectrum to share their wisdom and discuss lessons learned. In this installment, you’ll hear from Bill Galipeau, CFO at BKM Capital Partners.

Q: What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned about leading in a challenging environment?

A: Transparency and honesty are key in challenging times. First, give an honest assessment of what needs to be changed and how it will get done. Next, provide a compelling vision of the future and how it benefits the people impacted. Finally, act swiftly and decisively.

Q: What’s the most valuable leadership advice you’ve ever been given?

A: Say what you mean and do what you say. Trustworthiness is the most important attribute of a leader. Great people will not follow someone they can’t trust.

Q: What’s the best decision you’ve ever made as a business leader?

A: The best decisions I’ve made are always related to the people I hire. Great businesses are made up of great people. I take extraordinary measures to attract and retain the best people for every position.
