Mark Zuckerberg How This Yahoo COO’s Advice Helped Him Shape Meta’s Core Values

Every company has a set of core values that it uses to maintain consistency in its operations because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing it to stay focused on its initial goal. Meta is no different, and while some might scoff at the idea that such a controversial company would have any values to speak of, it actually does have some core mottos that CEO Zuckerberg came up with.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Mark Zuckerberg expanded on the core values of his now rebranded company Meta, and he revealed that former Yahoo COO Dan Rosenweig gave him some advice that stuck with him. This advice was that every organization has something or the other negative associated with it, but in spite of the fact that this is the case the CEO of the company has a say in what these negative attributes are.

Most businesses have something or the other negative associated with them but the good ones themselves better know where they actually sucks.

One can see how this advice impacted Zuckerberg who is famous for his early motto of “move fast and break things”. The Meta CEO seems to view this advice in a rather positive light, claiming that it allowed him to choose the things that he wanted to focus on instead of getting distracted by doing too many things at once. The tech legend also spoke about other core values that he follows while running his company, including a desire to live in the future, and many of these values have been updated after Facebook changed its name to Meta.

Zuckerberg still has his fair share of critics, and much of the criticism that has been levied against him is most definitely valid, but it’s interesting to get a look into the mind behind one of the most impactful companies in history. Whether or not that impact has been positive or if it has been negative is a different matter, but Zuckerberg’s recent interview revealed a lot about how he thinks he should be running his company in an ideal scenario.
