Microsoft's CEO on the 3 qualities that make a great leader


Finally, being successful doesn’t happen overnight. And even when you do become successful, you’re bound to hit a few hurdles on your way — so bear this in mind.

“The last thing is that leaders have to drive success in — what is essentially — an over-constrained problem,” Nadella added. “You can’t say ‘I’m waiting for the perfect weather and the full alignment of stars, and I’ll show you my brilliance.’ I mean, that’s not leadership.”

“You have to be able to figure it out and drive success.”

And those are some key aspects Microsoft takes into account when looking at job applicants. At the software giant, Microsoft encourages its employees to pursue their passion and embrace their own identities.

Yet, if you’re trying to get a foot in the door, the company states that its looking for people who have a “strong desire to learn, intelligence, a passion for technology, a willingness to work hard, rock-solid skills, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a desire to be the best.”
