After many successful years as the high achieving CEO of Tractor Supply Co., one of the fastest growing and most consistent earning corporations in the country, in retirement Joe Scarlett has turned to teaching and writing about those principals, talents, ethics, and habits that are the hallmarks of exceptional leaders. In this new book, Joe has edited and consolidated his earlier essays into one volume. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to achieve true, high performance leadership skills. Joe has “been there, done that” and writes about leadership in a practical, thoughtful, and useful way.
