Portfolio Podcast Episode 6: The Power of Breaking Bad Habits
"I truly believe that diversity and having people with different backgrounds is really energizing, and it really pushes an organization forward, it pushes an organization to be successful."
In this special episode of the BISA Podcast, Portfolio
contributing editor Rich Blake is joined by Martin Powell, head of annuity distribution at CUNA Mutual Group and a supporter of BISA’s Black Voices Unmuted task force. In this episode, Powell shares his inspiring story, how his passion for equality and inclusivity was instilled in him at a young age, moving snapshots of his life, and his pathway to leadership.
Powell gives insight into three habits leaders in the industry need to break in order to find financial success. The pair cover ways to broaden diversity and create opportunity, overcoming biases, the power of breaking bad habits, and why seeking out diversity in the workplace is imperative.
