Wow! How come he did this?

Here are the few way helped him to get top.

Be Loyal

Much is made about the fact that Nadella was a “22-year expert” of Microsoft. But think about it. That’s a long period for a mounting, ambitious star with vastly marketable skills and a gazillion industry associates to stick around. The only clarification is: loyalty. Nadella chose Microsoft and wedged it out through the good times and bad. When time to pick a CEO, Microsoft went with a guy who has established that he’s truly dedicated to the company.

Be Pleasant

Pleasant guys finish last, right? Wrong! Nadella is a super- pleasant guy, yet he’s never clogged succeeding in his career. Over the years of working within a company or industry, unnecessary slights, insolence, abuses, dismissiveness, or sloppiness with the feelings of others will mount up. They leave behind a trail of bad-mouthing, back-stabbing and, ultimately, career sabotage. Always be nice.

Be Hard

Being good doesn’t mean making the easy verdicts that make everyone feel good. It simply means that you take the feelings of others seriously, and try not to squash on those feelings. You can’t actually succeed in any business unless you’re willing to make the right choices that also happen to be hard, unpopular and painful.

The true is everyone will not get chance to run such a big company in the world. But by cultivating these virtues we can maximize our chances of success these qualities.
