Warning Future Generations

This past week banker’s from Morgan, Stanley, Chase met with young, prospective bankers to hold a seminar on the banking life. There were many laughs, a few anecdotal stories, and a warning…

“There are a lot of people who could have been up here with us talking today, but they made bad decisions, and they’re out of the game,” said Adam Carlin, managing director of wealth management at Morgan Stanley and a University of Miami School of Business alumnus who sponsored the trip along with Richard Bermont, senior vice president of wealth management. “Really think about the decisions you make,” Carlin said, “and what they say about you.”

A stern warning in light of the rampant corruption in banking that has erupted worldwide as of late. But yet, one that is a healthy reminder that such corruption will not and cannot be tolerated.

This was a banking seminar for the next generation leaders, and thus, by virtue of that it was meant to be a formative “first look” experience for these aspiring bankers.

As you lead in your own business endeavors, how do you prepare future leaders who will one day lead in industry? Are you preparing such leaders now through actively training and delivering information via such seminars?

If you are, then what message is it that you are trying to instill in them? As you consider this question, consider whether that message is even now, at this moment, the very heart of your business.
