Chris Hirst's new book, No Bullshit Leadership, just hit stores. In it, the CEO of Havas Creative shares his jargon-free, straightforward approach to leadership, developed through years of hands-on experience with cutting the crap to get good work done.

In this episode of Simplify Spotlight, Chris Hirst illuminates some things about leadership that you might think you already know, but don't—like, what's a leader's real job?—and a way to meet the question that has tortured leaders for ages: how can I tell whether I'm actually doing a good job?
