Robert Castrignano, principal of Sandler O’Neill & Partners in New York, spent more than three hours on Feb. 27 speaking with students about what he has learned throughout his career. The class, “CEO Lessons in Leadership,” was introduced this spring.
“All of this revolves around the mindset of what you want to get out of life and what you are willing to do to get there,” Castrignano told the students. “Each of you will face situations that are not pleasant. What matters is how you will react to them.”
