Communication is the key to thriving in a C-suite role. People often think that it gets lonely at the top, but it doesn’t have to be. And if you want to continue in such a high-level role, you have to make good communication and engagement with like-minded colleagues a priority. Share with others the challenges that you’re facing. More than likely, they’ve encountered the same situations! Not only can they relate, but they can provide insights and advise. That’s priceless. I’ve created a mini peer group of people that I met through community involvement, board positions and other capacities — people I don’t work with or for — and we meet once a month for dinner. It doesn’t need to be a large group — mine consists of just four people — but it has made a huge impact in my life and career.

I had the pleasure to interview Rahul B. Patel. As Managing Partner of Patel Gaines, PLLC, Rahul leads the fifth fastest growing law firm in the nation. Focusing on commercial and civil litigation, commercial real estate law, property tax litigation and corporate and business law, Rahul and his team of innovative legal minds create solutions for complex client needs. Patel Gaines, serving clients across the State of Texas with offices in San Antonio, Houston and Fort Worth, is contemporizing the structure of traditional law firms, delivering creative solutions and proven results, with a high level of service. In addition to his role with Patel Gaines, Rahul also serves as founder and CEO of FSM (Fundamental Sports Management, LLC), which he launched in 2018. Rahul leads a dream team of professionals, retired athletes and sports industry veterans with a vision and mindset to change how professional athletes are represented. FSM
