Execution of Strategy is Key

David Neeleman, JetBlue

Neeleman believes execution of the strategy is key. You must, as a leader, be able to expose yourself to your employees and ask for feedback, he says. You must be able to answer when you are wrong, or don’t know the answer, he adds. These are very simple concepts, but are very difficult to execute on a daily basis.
