In her post, Gupta shared that no management class can teach the ‘wartime leadership’ that Satya Nadella demonstrated.

After Sam Altman returned as OpenAI CEO after his tumultuous ouster, Satya Nadella took to X to share a post for both OpenAI and Microsoft employees. He expressed his gratitude towards the employees for their work in advancing AI ‘safely’ and ‘responsibly’ for the greater benefit of humanity. His post, ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, went viral with over 3.6 million views. Many even dropped comments and quoted his tweet, including Edelweiss Mutual Fund’s MD and CEO Radhika Gupta.
