A recent survey of more than 3,600 technology employees has revealed that SpaceX and Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, are the "most inspiring" industry leaders in 2019. These include Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Satya Nadella of Microsoft and Jack Ma of Alibaba.
The survey was conducted by Job Search Marketplace Hired which describes itself as a company that brings together the most innovative talent in the world with the most innovative companies in the market. For the Global Brand Health Report 2019, the company asked its respondents to classify the most inspiring technology leaders for them. Musk prevailed.
There are several reasons why the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla was considered to be the most inspirational among the survey respondents. This includes the fact that Musk is not afraid to think big. In any of his projects, be it SpaceX, Tesla, Neuralink, or even side projects like The Boring Company, Musk's endgame is never short-sighted or short-sighted.
There was a time when the idea of a private space flight was considered far-fetched, or the idea of a fully electric car beating the time of a Porsche around the Nürburgring was considered implausible ; But with Musc's determination, these things are now reality. Although musk tends to miss his deadlines due to his optimism, he delivers, albeit too late.
Another plausible reason for Musk's inspiring qualities is his lack of reluctance to be at the forefront. In the early days of SpaceX, Musk capitalized on the success of the Falcon 1, enabling the startup space company to practically go into orbit through the skin of its teeth. Musk also took over Tesla's reins during the financial crisis to navigate an irreconcilable time in which even the car-juggernaut GM could not survive.
Musk has never really given up this habit. While Tesla set up its GA4 on the grounds of the Fremont plant last year, Musk became aware of torque screws among the electric car manufacturer's workers. Musk also wanted to stay in the worst phase of Model 3 production in Fremont and sleep on a couch in one of the factory's conference rooms. When asked why he felt uncomfortable, Musk was honest.
"The reason I was sleeping on the floor was not that I could not cross the street and be in the hotel." It was because I wanted my circumstance to be deliberately worse than anyone else in the company. However they felt pain, I wanted my to get worse. That's why I did it, "he said.
The same goes for improvements to the company's autopilot technology. In a statement to The Information members of the company's autopilot development team revealed that Musk is using itself as the primary test object for the company's driver assistance systems. This poses some risk to the CEO, and members of the team say that Musk is in "situations where many of us do not want to be." However, despite the risks, this strategy also enables the company to evolve and evolve. Improve autopilot software quickly.
