Mary Barra was among the world's most-watched executives when she became General Motors' CEO. The Board preferred to take advantage of homegrown talent when choosing Barra, who came through the ranks-rather than looking outside the company.
Shortly after Barra took over, GM was confronted with the ignition switch crisis as well as a series of other recalls. Barra’s knowledge of GM and its unique dynamics would prove critical as the company worked to regain its footing. Under Barra's leadership, we have been watching the growth of the company and would like to share some thoughts about her management style as she works to expand on the momentum of the past two years.
We bring you Mary Barras top 5 quotes about success and motivation:
“What I always say is, Do every job you're in like you're going to do it for the rest of your life, and demonstrate that ownership of it.”
“If you do every job like you're going to do it for the rest of your life, that's when you get noticed.”
“My definition of 'innovative' is providing value to the customer.”
“No matter what business you go into, you only win when your customer says you win, don't confuse progress with winning.”
“My parents were both born and raised in the Depression. They instilled great values about integrity and the importance of hard work, and I've taken that with me to every job.”
