“Leave the gun, take the cannoli”.

Arguably one of the greatest film series of all-time, The Godfather isn’t what many people would call a solid lesson on business. Sure, if you’re in the business of disposing bodies and completing “favors” then maybe you’d be justified in taking notes on the film. Some, like Justin Moore, argue otherwise.

CEO and founder of Axcient, Moore has read between the lines of the film and has extracted five valuable lessons on business leadership from Don Corleone. These lessons are applicable to all; even to the cops trying to take down the Mafia.

Do you think these lessons are valuable? What other important lessons should a leader learn?
