10. Ben Newman: Championship-Caliber Leadership

Leaders are most often judged by their actions, not their words. For prospects, clients and staff members, what we do holds far more weight than what we say.

What kind of an example are you setting?

A renowned speaker and bestselling author, Ben Newman also holds another important title: mental conditioning coach for Alabama football. In this edition of The Business of Advice with Cody Foster, Ben reveals what he’s learned working alongside Crimson Tide head coach and seven-time national champion Nick Saban, arguably the most effective leader in the history of his profession.

Ben, who witnessed at a young age the generational impact the financial services industry can have on a family, also explains why advisors should never lose sight of the one thing that truly matters about their chosen field. Be sure to catch this must-listen episode!
