At the helm of the Taylor family’s many business ventures, Trey Taylor wears many hats but in all roles takes a deep focus on leadership. Through The CEO Academy, Trey coaches and mentors CEOs across the country to make them more effective business leaders. That work, combining experiences that span multiple industries and meshing Trey’s own insights as the CEO of Taylor Insurance Services with the best practices of some of the greatest minds in business, is forming the basis of Trey’s upcoming book, tentatively titled the Three Things a CEO Does.

In our talk, we touch briefly on each of these three things, exploring some of the key ideas and concepts that set Trey’s perspective on leadership apart from the status quo. In this episode, we dive into topics like:

  • How a lowest common denominator culture can fester and eventually derail a business
  • How Trey’s unique take on the interview process dramatically increases retention
  • How CEO’s can think differently about their approach to numbers

There’s a lot to unpack here, and I’m looking forward to learning more from Trey in the future.
