Tipster: It's Strictly Business

Axcient CEO Justin Moore recently offered Fast Company five lessons on leadership he gleaned from “The Godfather” - all but one of them illustrated with a quote from the iconic movie:

  1. Build a powerful community. “Someday, and that day may never come, I’ll call upon you to do a service for me.”
  2. Hold people accountable.  “What’s the matter with you? I think your brain is going soft.”
  3. Don’t get emotional. “It’s not personal, Sonny. It’s strictly business.”
  4. Be decisive.
  5. Spend time with your family. “Do you spend time with your family? Because a man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man.”
