I found a very interesting article that discusses Bill Gates leadership style. It states that Mr. Gates is more likely to be a task-oriented leader who needs performance from his subordinates and strives to ensure that all work is focused on achieving the goal and objectives of his company. Obviously he was very successful in his leadership role at Microsoft and has proven to also do so with his foundation. This is evident by the fact that Bill and Melinda’s foundation is the most successful charitable organization.

Unformatted text preview: The article goes on to describe that Bill takes his vision and then he finds the necessary people to implement that vision. As our group discussed in class this is what sets Gates apart from just being a manager. The article I found describes Gates as intelligent, a visionary, passionate, innovative, risk bearer, and continuous learner. These align with the characteristics of a leader that were described in our in class article. Source: http://www.scribd.com/doc/16315025/Leadership-Style-of-Billgates...
