Sometimes being a strong leader really is as simple as not sweating the details, according to serial entrepreneur Sidney Torres.

The New Orleans native, who quickly made a name for himself by founding and selling his trash business to become one of the stars of New Orleans’ social causes, recently broke down what it takes for someone to display natural-born leadership skills.

“I don’t get caught up on the little things,” Torres said. “I like to look at things globally and say, ‘How can I fix this?’”

He added that looking at problems from a wider perspective has always helped him move quickly.
