Sidney Johnson is a three-D and a three-P kind of leader. “I’m a three-D guy with my team because we work to build a strategy,” he explains. “We’re going to debate, because I want to hear from everybody. Then, we’re going to decide — I’m a stickler about people not making decisions; it may not be perfect for everybody, but you have to make a decision. Then we’re going to go do something.”
