Intro

In today’s hypercompetitive global marketplace, business leaders need every advantage they can get in order to be successful. Your leadership abilities dictate much of your business’s success. While many of the leaders we idolize like Steve Jobs of Apple, Bill Gates of Microsoft and Jeff Bezos of Amazon were visionaries and seemed to have all the answers, it isn’t obvious that this is a strategy at all and isn’t even something we can even imitate.

Could the answer be found in doing the exact opposite?
