Most professionals would agree that our past experiences and lessons are vital in influencing the decisions we make today. As such, one hopes to have the opportunity to learn from people of the highest caliber and to be able to analyze how that person may handle a certain situation. I commonly leverage such experiences, and in nearly every business decision I make, I consider the potential thoughts of Frank Bastone. Frank has an uncanny ability to see opportunity and talent where others may not. He motivates and inspires people, largely as a result of his ability to extract the absolute best results from them. This causes the people that work for and with Frank to have the rewarding experience of achieving at their highest level, and it is at the root of what makes Frank such a great motivator. He leads people to achieve above what they thought possible. Being one such employee (though I may think of myself as "student" as well) of Frank's while he was COO of Lawline.com, I saw a business that grew substantially through his direction. In addition, he allowed me to see the potential that lied deeper within myself. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work for him. Frank is a leader of organizations, teams, and people. I fully recommend him for any company looking to maximize the leadership, talent, and growth within their organization.
