Baidu CEO Robin Li
business process to date has been almost 13 years, experienced all sorts of difficulties, every year about one or two times will think this thing is too difficult, really do not go on, this bridge if don’t go, the company will be finished, but the most after each such a thing is over, all get through.
the most important reason is that there is an ideal in my mind, but also want to let more people benefit from what I have done, so that people can more easily access to information, to find. Ideal for a person is very important, we learn to manage, it is not the essence of a person to complete an ideal, but more with a group of like-minded people to achieve an ideal. As professor Kwelch mentioned, in Baidu, we work together to create a great thing for a common ideal. Learn to learn this, learn how to not only rely on their own, but by more people together to make a thing, to make a great or even greater things.
in addition to the ideal, I think it is more important, how to let every people around, people in a team, subordinate superiors together for a common ideal to make one thing, I think this is as the manager needs to consider. The earliest Baidu began to set up, I lazy, said the future can find a CEO, he is a professional manager, know all the management. And I am a technical man, do my product and technology, so Baidu founded the first five years, the company is not CEO, my position in the past has been president. Until 2005, the company to be listed, the lawyer began to write the prospectus to ask who is the chairman and CEO? Then had no choice but to put me up, even if I have a dream, I should just three people, a CTO, a COO, a CFO, the rest of all let they, in the Baidu listed before I did realize this organization. Later found not, some things no matter I have problems, some executives for the same reasons left, now report directly to me. There are seven or eight people, I had to give up no matter what can make the idea.
at the same time, for so many years in addition to the technology and products continue to adhere to the outside, I also continue to ponder the problem. Baidu’s talent concept is to recruit the best people, give the maximum space, see the final results, so that the outstanding people stand out. When enough people, must let the good people and good people, the efforts of the people and those who do not work hard, people with passion and passion people distinguish, only the company have the culture and environment in order to truly let those who have the ability and contribution of the people have the opportunity. So, this is from the people’s point of view, some problems need to think of the ideal.
my own ideal is actually changing, small time, in primary school
