    Here's what some of the bosses have to say:

    "Lead by example. If you do that as a CEO, your style will filter down through your team." - John Chambers, Cisco Systems
    "We do a lot of quantitative stuff. But coupled with that is having an employee staff and culture that is inherently interested in what we do." - Tom Freston, MTV Networks
    "Surround yourself with people you trust. You can't run a business over a certain size and sign off on everything." - Emily Woods, J. Crew
