October 4, 2013 – Bill Gates, Microsoft Chairman

This week’s Grounded Leader of the Week is Bill Gates, Microsoft Chairman. The iconic business leader’s transformation from extreme workaholic to balanced business leader and philanthropist is praiseworthy as a Grounded Leader. Gates’ path to a higher purpose, global connectedness and generosity of spirit is well documented especially since leaving Microsoft as CEO. Passion for his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation pretty much resonates in all he does publicly today.

In this recent appearance at Harvard, Gates answers facetious questions from the interviewer in a lighthearted way, sharing his experiences as a Harvard dropout, his successes and his failures.  One particularly interesting failure he talks about is CTRL-ALT-DEL, the three key combination that is part of Windows lore. For his persistent efforts to put leadership into action, to look outside himself and beyond his own personal success and live with gratitude and generosity, BILL GATES is this week’s Grounded Leader of the Week.
