Chapter 11: The Leader’s Hat

“I know I have a spotlight on me, and my team is looking at me to show them the way. What I’ve learned about over the years, and what you’ll hear about in this chapter, is leadership is not about being the smartest or the loudest in the room. It’s about listening and gathering information from smart people so you can make the best decisions. It’s not about short-term wins. It’s about big picture strategy. It’s not about being liked. It’s about being respected. The leader’s hat is a heavy hat to wear, but it’s so important to the success of your business.” – Andy Jones, President, Forrest Firm

This is Chapter 11: The Leader’s Hat
