SplatF Employee of the Month: Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix
Most leaders are too stubborn or scared to make drastic changes in order to prepare for the future. And then they get destroyed. But Hastings is the opposite: He just hacked off a dying limb, Netflix’s DVD business, to focus on streaming video — the only possible successful future for Netflix. The company certainly could have handled it differently, but the ballsy move still stands. Good call, Reed — you’re our employee of the month.
