  • Hinge founder and CEO Justin McLeod doesn’t have email on his smartphone.
  • He said it makes him a better leader because he has time and space to think, and doesn’t get wrapped up in the minutia of running a business.
  • McLeod sometimes disconnects from his team for weeks at a time for the same reason.
  • Other successful leaders also try to disconnect, so they can engage in some big-picture thinking.

In the last few months, Justin McLeod has found himself to be a much better leader, and a much happier person.

McLeod, who is the founder and CEO of dating app Hinge, didn’t go to a management seminar or hire an executive coach. He simply deleted the email app from his smartphone.
