Intel CEO on What Makes a Great Leader
Intel CEO: What Makes a Great Leader
There's no better person to give advice on how to lead than Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, who runs a billion-dollar tech company with over 100,000 employees. Krzanich hosted an Ask Me Anything Q&A session on Reddit today, and here's what he said in response to a commenter who asked what he believes to be the mark of a great leader:
"To say a great leader simply motivates their people is true but too simple. Sure, every great leader has the ability to motivate people, but that alone is not enough in today's world. You have to be able to create and then articulate a vision. Motivated people with no clear direction is not a winning team. The vision to strategy piece is very important, and then you have to be able to get things done, to build a product, or have people around you who can. Many of the greatest leaders have had just that — the ability to motivate, create a vision, build a strategy, but then use teams to actually build the product."
