West Palm Beach partner Arthur J. Menor was recently featured in “Conversations with the Council,” published by the Economic Council of Palm Beach County.
The piece, titled “Listening to Learn: How Art Menor Built Consensus One Member at a Time,” discusses his leadership style.
“The key to leading a group is respect,” said Art. “Respect is earned, not demanded. In a group like the Economic Council, which is comprised of highly accomplished leaders, it is built over time and starts by handling small tasks well.”
According to Michele Jacobs, the President and CEO of the Council, Art’s chairmanship has been highlighted by sincerity, candor, and civility. “I consider him to be a mentor. He is not afraid to challenge me and raise issues of concern. He has helped make me better and our group better so we avoid making the same mistake twice. He is very constructive with his advice.”
