Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has been with the Redmond company for a very long time, and it has only been a couple of years since he was tapped as the third CEO this multi-billion dollar corporation has ever had. It goes without saying that his job is not an easy one and I’m sure we can all learn a thing or two from his experiences, which is why many of us will be glad to hear that Satya Nadella is writing a book called Hit Refresh.
Hit Refresh will focus on Nadella’s life, his time at Microsoft, and how he sees technology shaping the future. The book is going to be published by Harper and is expected to be released by fall 2017.
This is the first book that Nadella has written and it appears that he doesn’t want it to be just another book from a business leader. Nadella’s book is going to be released through Harper Business and he intends to give away all of the earnings from Hit Refresh to Microsoft Philanthropies.
He points out that this book is not a memoir and it’s also not a “how to succeed” book, it’s more about transformation, and we might get to read about how he’s transformed Microsoft ever since he took the reins from Steve Ballmer.
“Nadella explores how people, organizations, and societies can and must transform — hit refresh — in their persistent quest for new energy, new ideas, relevance and renewal,” reads the official description of this book from Harper.
All proceeds from the book will be donated to Microsoft Philanthropies that’s going to use the money from it to support nonprofits working on “public cloud for public good projects.”
