Leading from the Front, Not by Position – with Carl Bloomfield, MD of NYC at The Graham Company

Season Two – Episode Three

Joining us on Episode Three of the Insurance Coffee House USA, we have Carl Bloomfield who is the Managing Director of the New York City office at the Graham Company.

Carl shares with us his passion for leadership and gives us a great insight into what he believes you need in order to be a successful leader.

Carl explains how leadership and position are two distinct things, so when opportunity in management positions become available, those who have already proved themselves as leaders in non-leadership positions will be front of the queue for promotion.

He also advocates taking 100% responsibility for your own career development and advancement by committing to self-improvement so you can attain those roles that will interest you and progress your career.

Carl feels that his biggest successes have been the next generation of leaders he has brought through under him, who have gone to become Presidents of businesses in their own right.

Finally, Carl shares with us the growth plans for the Graham Company including the big ambitions for the NYC office. He is very proud of the high quality and sophisticated risk advisory work The Graham Company provides to their clients and encourages listeners to reach out to him after the show with any comments or questions.
