Josh highlights several things ranging from who leaders and bosses are, expounding that while a boss demands respect while accomplishing his goals, a leader earns the respect by putting his people before him, and use the respect earned to getting them accomplish the goals for him. He explained that the latter is the best way to accomplish anything that you and your team set.
A leader has to speak less and learn more. The less a leader speaks the more the power, their words have and the more authoritative he will be. As a matter of fact everyone only has two ears and one mouth and hence they should use them in that proportion. It is only when you speak less that people will always want to hear you whenever you have anything to say.
Josh also advises leaders to strike a balance of life. Even though one has much money but their home life and health is compromised, they will suffer. Alternatively if you have a loving family, shredded body but you are really not making enough money, you still will suffer. One should also figure out what they are passionate about and pursue it if they want to be successful, Josh added.
