Authors@Wharton presents Satya Nadella in a conversation with Adam Grant

Professor Adam Grant recently sat down the CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella to discuss his new bookHit Refresh: The Quest to Rediscover Microsoft’s Soul and Imagine a Better Future for Everyone.

Nadella had a somewhat unlikely path to the top job at Microsoft. After 22 years at the company, when he was asked by the board to succeed Steve Ballmer in 2014 — as only the third CEO in the software giant’s history — his response was “only if you want me to be.” Yet Nadella’s track record as CEO has been widely lauded. Under his leadership, Microsoft has “reversed its fortunes and returned to being a growth stock after stagnating for nearly a decade,” according to TechCrunch.
