8:14 am
not easy. how do you do it and what are you looking to create? >> you know, when a company's successful, one of the things that happens is the concept that got you started in the first place, the capability that you have and the culture all get into this beautiful, virtuous lock, and things are going well. then lo and behold, you have to come up with a new concept, a new idea, for which you need new capability. that's when the culture has to be at its premium. in other words, the culture needs to enable you to come up with new ideas, build new capabilities. so that's why i think for companies to be successful over a long period of time, you need more than a good idea and a good strategy. you need a culture that fosters that growth. >> and the capacity to refresh all the time. >> that's correct. i mean, the fact that everything that starts off and goes into hypergrowth ultimately does taper off. the real question is what do you do when that happens? how do you hit refresh is sort of i think the real challenge
8:15 am
for us as individuals, as companies, or as societies. >> and you said one of the things that starts with you -- for you, it meant empathy, which i think is such a great concept. jeff weiner, who you all are together. i love you guys. i think it's a great bromance between the two of you. you both talk about empathy a lot, and i think that's so important. and you cite in your book two strong examples of how your life was changed by empathy and how it carries with you today. >> yeah, first of all, i think empathy, everything -- if you think even about in the business context for us, our job is to meet the unmet, unarticulated needs of customers. that's where innovation comes from. there is no way we could innovate without having the deepest sense of empathy. >> so what happened to you? >> what i write in the book is my interview at microsoft. the last, the very last question the last interviewer asked me is what would you do if there was a child who had fallen on the road? so i thought about it for a few seconds. i thought there was some algorithm there, and then i said i'd call 911.
8:16 am
so, the interviewer just walks up and leaves, and i thought i had blown the interview, because he then tells me, look, when a child is on the ground and crying, you pick them up and hug them. >> yes. >> that was my first big lesson on empathy. >> and it changed your life. >> absolutely. i mean, i reflected on it quite a bit. and that's the other point, it's not some innate capability. i believe that your life's experiences will teach you, if you listen. and at least in my case, that's what, whether it was that interview question, the birth of my son, and every day at microsoft i learn about building a deeper insight to be able to ee see through oothz' eyes. >> you write that your son has severe cerebral palsy. >> that's right. he was born 21 years ago with a idiotroasphyxiation, which led to cerebral palsy. and in the book, it was more about why did this happen to me,
8:17 am
but was only through watching my wife, for whom it came much more naturally to care for him, that i realized nothing happened to me, something happened to him, and what my job was as a father. and that realization, perhaps more than anything else, shaped my outlook in the years to come. >> you know, it's interesting, because microsoft, you think about microsoft being a leader in innovation, and you write in the book that in the smartphone era that microsoft had failed to lead and barely managed to participate. and then you say the "c" in ceo is for culture. how does culture change innovation? >> i mean, to me, for a company that is successful and to continue to be successful in something like high-tech for a long time, you're going to have your hits and misses. if i look back, you know, 43 years ago when the company got started to here we are competing with a whole set of new competitors. at any given point in time, the question is have you caught enough waves, even if you've missed one or two? that's the real question. and that's where the culture i think helps. if you have a culture that allows you to learn from your
8:18 am
mistakes and still grow, then you are right. >> that fly on the glasses i know -- >> take off your glasses so you can get rid of it. >> you talked about when you wanted to get to your employees, you said that the morale was low, that people thought they had lost their cool factor. you have a specific call at 6:02 so you can talk to everybody and you want them to know what? this is what we're going to do. >> to me it was not that we lost our cool factor or the misses that we had, it was more about being in touch with our core sense of purpose and identity. look at it, right, microsoft's different from a lot of other companies in the sense our first product was the basic interprot for the altare. that's what paul and bill created. and what it telegraphs for me is that we create technology so that others can create more technology. that's who we are. we're a toolmaker. and in a world today where every walk of lie and every industry is being shaped by digital
8:19 am
technology, our original pieces is even more important. and i wanted to be in touch with it. >> technology's so powerful, but also the success of tech companies has made them very powerful, and there is much conversation today about putting them under very, very strict scrutiny. are you worried about that? >> i think that any company that has done well has a significant footprint, especially multinationally, i think it's super important for us to think about the surplus we create around us. i think -- when i think about microsoft, one of the things that gives me the greatest pride, whether i'm in the new york area or i'm in any part of the world, is the small businesses that are more productive, the large businesses that have become more competitive, the public sector that's more efficient, the educational outcomes that are better because of the work we do. unless and until we measure ourselves with the outcomes outside of our own balance sheet, i think there's no long-term success in business. >> so it's incumbent on you to take a look at what the consequences are to technological development.
8:20 am
>> absolutely, and especially how broad-spread is the success around you because of your innovation? without that, i think the equation is unbalanced. >> well, third ceo, bill gates, steve ballmer, and now you. congratulations. >> thank you so much. >> satya nadella, thank you so much. and "hit refresh" is on sale today. the the race to host amazon's second headquarters is heating up. some companies are rolling out unusual incentives. ahead, how one even tried to mail amazon's ceo a giant cactus. >> well, that's creative. that's different. >> plus, a wedding photo shoot takes an unexpected turn. how the groom saved a young boy from drowning. you're watching "cbs this morning." how the groom saved a young boy from drowning. you're watching "cbs this morning." hi. so i just got off the phone with our allstate agent, and i know that we have accident forgiveness.

melanie hopson is in chicago. good morning! >> reporter: good morning. >> first question i have for you, what will it mean for the cost of goods at target? will they go up, as well? >>. >> reporter: interestingly what the company is saying is prices will go down up. not up. we're seeing it in a lot of stories in retail now. lowering prices is a priority. we saw it with amazon when they purchased whole foods. so they're saying they won't go up, in fact, they'll go down and to make up for the difference, what they need is scale. more sales. >> so raising it to $11 an hour, melody, how does it compare to their competitors? >> reporter: rank them number five among the big box retailers with costco leading the charge at $13 an hour. nordstrom behind them. lowe's and home depot. and then target. you think about retailers who have $500 million in sales or more. the average hourly rate is
8:37 am
around $9. >> will we see across the board most companies a push toward -- but not there at $15? >>ic the bottom line, i don't know if it's $15 or $14 or $13, but the bottom line these wages are going up. one reason because we're virtually full employment at 4.3% for unemployment rate. the other thing at this level, it's not necessarily so hard to get the people, it's hard to keep them. these are entry-level jobs. someone will leave for a 25 cent per hour increase and go to another employer. they also to try to see a career path. they need a way to keep these people in these jobs. so telegraphing they're going to $15 by 2020, i think, is a way of suggesting stick with us. there's a way of making more money and having a career path here. >> for a better work force. -- incentive for a better work force. >> reporter: absolutely. and go up against the online

retailers. their asset, which many see is the liability, is the store. they want to make sure when you walk in the store, you're not lost. you can get what you need and you can get a good customer experience. and there's a direct correlation between i have the employee and higher customer satisfaction. >> that would make sense. there's sometimes push back to raising the minimum wage. what is the downside, melody, as some see it? >> reporter: it leads to further unemployment because companies can't afford it. the train has left the station. the federal minimum wage is $7.25. we're talking about $11 going to $15. we have seen some states like washington, massachusetts already go to $11. i mentioned costco pays $13 an hour. people recognize you have to pay more. >> melody hopson, good to see you. thank you very much for joining us from chicago this morning. >> thank you. garfunkel's voice has been described as angelic and haunting. as he told in 2013 in a note to
