Bezos: Deliver results

"Leaders focus on the key inputs for their business and deliver them with the right quality and in a timely fashion. Despite setbacks, they rise to the occasion and never settle."

Nadella: Deliver success

  • Drive innovation that people love

  • Be boundary-less in seeking solutions

  • Tenaciously pursue the right outcomes

"[Leaders] find a way to deliver success, to make things happen. This means driving innovations that people love and are inspired to work on; finding balance between long-term success and short-term wins; and being boundary-less and globally minded in seeking solutions," Nadella wrote in his memoir.

Nadella: Generate energy

"Leaders generate energy, not only on their own teams but across the company. It's insufficient to focus exclusively on your own unit," Nadella wrote in his memoir.

Bezos: Ownership

"Leaders are owners. They think long term and don't sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. They act on behalf of the entire company, beyond just their own team. They never say 'that's not my job.'"
