  11. 11. “Thank you. Every time I see that white paper on the front page of Amazon, I know that I’m about to get more for my money than I thought I would. I signed up for Prime for the shipping, yet now I get movies and TV books. You keep adding more, but not chaging more. So thanks again for the additions.”

  15. 15. "Our whole philosophy became ‘let’s take most of the money we would’ve spent on paid advertising and paid marketing and instead of spending it on that invest it in the customer experience/customer service and then let our customers do the marketing for us through word of mouth’ and that became the whole business model" http://blog.kissmetrics.com/zappos-art-of-culture/
  16. 16. Frugality
  17. 17. We try not to spend money on things that don’t matter to customers. Frugality breeds resourcefulness, self-sufficiency, and invention. There are no extra points for headcount, budget size, or fixed expense.
  18. 18. "High margins cover a lot of sins. We wouldn't know how to do a high margin business. Low margins keep you aligned with customers” – Jeff Bezos
  19. 19. Disagree and Commit
  20. 20. Leaders are obligated to respectfully challenge decisions when they disagree, even when doing so is uncomfortable or exhausting. Leaders have conviction and are tenacious. They do not compromise for the sake of social cohesion. Once a decision is determined, they commit wholly.
  21. 21. Dive Deep
  22. 22. Leaders operate at all levels, stay connected to the details, and audit frequently. No task is beneath them.
  23. 23. Hire and Develop the Best
  24. 24. Leaders raise the performance bar with every hire and promotion. They recognize exceptional talent, and willingly move them throughout the organization. Leaders develop leaders and take seriously their role in coaching others.
