Business Leaders – Steve Ballmer

Steve Ballmer, CEO Microsoft, was speaking today at the Detroit Economic Club event I attended. His energy could be felt throughout the entire room. Steve speaks passionately with messages that are hard to ignore. There were three key things I noted about one of my favorite Business Leaders – Steve Ballmer:

1) He demonstrated leadership and commitment to the company by stating and referencing Microsoft’s vision at least twice during his speech and the answers to questions.
2) He named Microsoft’s values without hesitation.
3) He spoke about leadership accountability referring to how far Microsoft had come on the predictions he had made when he spoke to the same group five years earlier.

For me, being a strong advocate and coaching my client’s about vision, values and accountability, to hear such a strong business leader openly talk about these three leadership topics made my day!
