Justin Moore caught an airing of The Godfather last week during the 40th anniversary of the film’s premiere. Moore, a serial entrepreneur and CEO and founder of a disaster recovery services for the small and mid-sized business market, noticed a few teaching moments for CEOs today. “I certainly don’t endorse crime or violence, and I’m not suggesting business should operate like the Mafia,” Moore explained, “but there are some universal themes in the movie I can relate to as a CEO.” Moore believes the movie offers valuable lessons in community, team building, making tough decisions, playing to win and – most importantly – not neglecting friends and family.
