Introducing our newest series, The Weedsmith, a meditation on modern cannabis leadership. We are honored to dedicate this inaugural season of The Weedsmith to the late hash-maker Frenchy Cannoli. In this week’s episode, he breaks down the leadership qualities he admired in others. The Weedsmith runs Wednesdays on Grasslands LinkedIn and Instagram pages.
You are listening to The Weedsmith, a show about modern cannabis thought leadership. And today I am thankful and honored to be sitting across from the man, Frenchy Cannoli. Frenchy, in your opinion, what makes a good leader?
Somebody who works by example, I would say. Somebody who believes in something so strong that he can share it with others and be the model of whatever goal or representation or belief he has.
I'm curious how you've adopted this, especially because you have so many students all over the world.
Yes, but it's a loose relation with students. I offer them the means to access me for information as long as they need me. I mean, I could be called a leader in trying to make my vision of what California can become for the cannabis industry in the world. You have to be the example. It starts there.
