This interview with Bob Moritz, chairman and senior partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers, was conducted and condensed by Adam Bryant.
Q. Any important leadership lessons when you were younger?
A. My first job in high school was in a clothing store, and I ended up working with someone who became a role model. He was in charge of the stockroom, and I admired him because he knew it all. He had a sense of what had to be done, and how you get it done. He had a great balance — he didn’t seem to go through tremendous highs or tremendous lows. He was dependable, and he was the go-to guy.
Q. You joined PwC right out of college. Tell me about the early years.
