Essay On Bill Gates

657 words - 3 pages

The most interesting article that I have read lately has to be about Bill Gates and how he has lead his company into the number one spot in the world. He co-founded Microsoft in 1975 and served as its Chief Executive Officer form the time the original partnership was incorporated in 1981 until January 2000. He is recognized as the youngest self-made billionaire in history. Windows operating system is America's most used software on the majority of personal computers. It is obvious that it takes a certain type of person to successfully create and maintain such a profitable organization. The article talked about how such a man had dropped out of Harvard to chase his dream. Gates has always believed in his goal and has never stopped striving for perfection. His aim for fulfillment and his charismatic leadership has been a major key to Microsoft's success. Gates tells his employees what to do ...view middle of the document...

Gates is such a charismatic leader and so extraordinary in his strategic insight that his subordinates idolize him and want to be like him. Gates uses extraordinary discretion when hiring applicants to work for Microsoft. He wants to ensure that every single person shares the same prospectus for the corporation, yet in their own way, have personal beliefs that they are willing to stubbornly stick to. His aim is not to create clones within the organization, but to stockpile it with as much imaginative genius has possible. Bill Gates is moody and if you backed down from Bill, he wouldn't have respect for you. Despite his domineering characteristics, Gates understands the importance of avoiding an overly aggressive attitude but maintaining assertiveness in leadership.An assertive leader is able to stand for their own rights, or their group's rights in a way that also recognizes the concurrent right of others to do the same. He is a high achiever and continually practices what he preaches. Gates' management style has been described as survival of the fittest. Gates defines his style in this way. When I was preparing to take my company public, I arranged to distribute an unusually large share of ownership to employees. It was a way of letting them know how much their performance mattered. The flip side of rewarding performance is making sure that employees who don't contribute are carefully managed or reassigned. It cannot be argued that Microsoft is the most successful computer company ever to come about. Bill Gates has done a remarkable job in leading the corporation from its meager beginnings in 1977, in which the company consisted of three employees, to the premium status that it enjoys today. The journey has not been without its share of obstacles but Gates has demonstrated however, the ability to foresee potential pitfalls before they occur and his leadership style has worked favorable to this point. Bill Gates is a perfect example of assessing leadership. His leadership qualities has lead Microsoft to 100% success and has made an impelling impact on America and had made a mark for himself in history.
