Indra Nooyi led PepsiCo for 12 successful years, reshaping one of the world's most recognised brands. The first woman and the first non-American to reach this position, landed her the Padma Bhushan award, one of the highest civilian honours in her native India!
During her time as Chief Executive, Indra led PepsiCo's push to lower calorie, lower sugar choices. That, alongside product packaging redesigns, led to an 80 percent growth in sales! As one of only 11 female chief executives of Fortune 500 companies all eyes were on Nooyi to deliver, and she surpassed many expectations.
To show our appreciation, we bring you her top 5 quotes about success and motivation!
“Leadership is hard to define and good leadership even harder. But if you can get people to follow you to the ends of the earth, you are a great leader.”
“When you assume negative intent, you're angry. If you take away that anger and assume positive intent, you will be amazed. Your emotional quotient goes up because you are no longer almost random in your response.”
“As a leader, I am tough on myself and I raise the standard for everybody; however, I am very caring because I want people to excel at what they are doing so that they can aspire to be me in the future.”
“I look at my job as a passion. As a calling, not as a job.”
“The challenge of a leader is looking around the corner. And making the change before it’s too late to make the change”
