Style Entrepreneur leadership
Evidence Jeff Bezos is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world. That is why he is one of the few billionaires in the world. Amazon was his concept, he was a pioneer for ecommerce, and he turned it to multi-billion dollar industry. Most of the ideas where based on his own choices, he started Amazon from his garage, he made the decision to buy Washington Post, he invented Kindle fire a portable tablet. I see him as a visionary leader, he conveys his decision making to his employees, I have never heard of employees introducing their own invention to Amazon Int, he demands a lot from his employees to meet up with his expectation. He is a micromanager, he makes most decisions. He personally allowed other retailers to sell their products on Amazon by so doing his company earns commission from each sale. After the invention of Kindle fire, he stills talks about his aspirations and future plans.
Rationale for style He is a visionary person, ready to take risk. As an entrepreneur he must do his best for his business to survive. Find himself in a competitive market will make him a very proactive leader, most decision making will be done by him.
