【商業智慧】英偉達共同創辦人黃仁勳：領導力令人興奮的地方就在於即使你手握著看似最差勁的牌，但仍舊深信自己能夠獲勝 Cofounder of Nvidia, Jensen Huang: I think that’s what’s thrilling about leadership when you’re holding onto literally the worst possible hand on the planet and you know you’re still going to win
In May 2023, NVIDIA's market value in US dollars surpassed one trillion, shocking Wall Street. Its market value has now exceeded that of Tesla and Meta, closely approaching Amazon. Jensen Huang once said, 'I think that’s what’s thrilling about leadership when you’re holding onto literally the worst possible hand on the planet and you know you’re still going to win.' The journey of establishing NVIDIA was full of challenges and uncertainties, but Jensen Huang never lost heart because of this.
The 'intellectual honesty' advocated by Huang is about facing reality candidly in the face of difficulties and errors, without letting emotions and biases influence decisions. This is a challenge for any leader, especially in the face of potential reputation damage.
Jensen Huang's leadership journey is filled with failures and challenges. But as he says, a true leader doesn't give up because of temporary setbacks. He views each failure as a learning opportunity and has cultivated a corporate culture that can withstand risks and learn from failures. This culture not only helped NVIDIA survive in crises but also made it a leader in the industry.
When facing seemingly insurmountable challenges, a leader's belief, determination, and ability to learn from mistakes are key to success. On the path to pursuing a career, the attitude towards challenges and failures is equally important. Huang's story proves that even with the seemingly worst cards, having firm belief and the right attitude can still lead to victory.
