Many people believe that leaders need to be tough in order to succeed. On the other hand, others believe that leaders should be kind. But why choose when you can be both? Proving that this interesting paradox is the quality of being a high-level leader, Adam Markel interviews none other than Matt Sweetwood, the CEO of LUXnow and the author of Leader of the Pack—a memoir that tells the story of how he suddenly became a single father to five children and how it made him not only a better father but also a better entrepreneur. At the core of his success is sitting with the principle of both being tough and kind, especially as he moves across adversities and taking pivots throughout his career. He shares with us the trajectory changes he had to go through from being the CEO of Unique Photo for 29 years to becoming who he is now. He also breaks down the two important traits that mark a resilient leader, especially in our current COVID-19 environment.
