5 Quotes By New Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi

According to news reports, Dara Khosrowshahi was chosen to be the new top executive of Uber.

1.“Desperation sometimes drives innovation.”
Financial Times — July 23, 2017

2. “As tech leaders we have to admit that we are hugely disconnected with our nation. I don’t like it but have to recognize this issue.”
Via Twitter — November 9, 2016

3. “I grew up in a family where respect and being respectful are good values.” WIT — April 12, 2017

4. “Many people think that leadership is solely about communication — presenting, making speeches, motivating. Being a good communicator is certainly important, but I’ve found that one of the most important skills for a leader is being a good listener. The higher up in the chain of command you are, the harder it is to really know what’s going on, so you have to discover the right information out of your people. You have to be great at reading body language and asking questions. You have to engender trust to get to the real stuff. Leaders who are disconnected with reality are the ones who fail.” Entrepreneur — May 3, 2017

5. “Rail in Europe is incredibly important as far as a transportation medium. It’s becoming increasingly important in the Asia-Pacific markets. And I think in the U.S., rail isn’t quite as strong, but we are certainly building up infrastructure on the back end to be able to expand our rail offering on a global basis.” Reuters (via The New York Times) — August 22, 2017
