Bangalore: The world has grown to a phase where technology is almost inseparable from human lives. There are many game changers in the field of technology whose innovative ideas and leadership skills have accelerated this growth. As the world embraces the emerging technologies, these great visionaries have a lot to impart to the new generation who would be the best beneficiaries of these technological advances. Learn the lessons of leadership from these technology stalwarts:

1. Bill Gates

A true game changer in the field of technology, Bill Gates has always stood out in the crowd with his talent and great passion. He proved that formal education or a graduation is not the only way out and the man who is consistently ranked among the world's wealthiest people says that we need to heed the lessons of failure and it can teach you resiliency. He lectures on how the business should be run and what needs to be learned from customer feedbacks and states, "Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning." For him, leadership is not just about control, it's about trusting others. The unpredictable character of business might lead to a situation where you end up working for your secretary and Bill Gates puts it this way, "Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one."

4: None of these leaders is a nice person. None got where they are except through aggression, lying, stealing, controlling their suppliers, trying to kill off competition (microsoft). Zuckerberg stole the facebook idea.

You don't get to the top by being a nice warm cuddly kind of person. You have to be driven and motivated to achieve at all costs. You maybe right on all points but that is not a criticism. The qualities you mention are present in ALL successful people of all fields of en-devour.
