Satya Nadella, the new CEO for Microsoft, is all about employee engagement and employee empowerment.
Here is how Satya reminded us that we all need to be a leader:
“We express that core identity, being the company that allows every individual to be more empowered and get more out of every moment of their lives as things get more digital.
I want each of us to give ourselves permission to be able to move things forward.
Each of us sometimes overestimate the power others have to do things vs. our own ability to make things happen.
Everyone in the company has to be a leader.”
Here is a great video that a colleague sent me on how to embed the capacity for greatness in the people and practices of an organization.
If you see a problem, fix it.
If you see an opportunity take it.
Don’t wait for somebody else to do it.
