Nooyi is the 11th to break into the top echelons of power.
Describing herself as an ordinary girl she still retains so much of her Indianness and dons sari with bindi in most of the office ceremonies. She believes the corporate world appreciates people who are genuine.

May 12, Sowmya Sridharamurthy rated it liked it Shelves: Biographies are supposed to be motivational awakening zeal in readers. Sadly, this book is just tumbles down. Most part of the book concentrates on Indra's college days and her personality in growing years, and not on how she came up with strategic solutions how she approached the issues etc.
Quotes from famous personalities are embedded in between the chapters, which is a nice to have in the book. If you are looking for a highly motivational read then I would say this is not the book you should get to.
But if you are looking to know a little more about Indra Nooyi and her personality in her growing years then this will do justice for your choice.

To lead in an ever-changing world, leaders must adapt and stay nimble. I'm very honest - brutally honest. I always look at things from their point of view as well as mine. And I know when to walk away.
Just because you are CEO, don't think you have landed. You must continually increase your learning, the way you think, and the way you approach the organization. I've never forgotten that. I think innovation as a discipline needs to go back and get rethought and revived. There are so many models to talk about innovation, there are so many typologies of innovation, and you have to find a good innovation metric that truly captures the innovation performance of a company.
My father was an absolutely wonderful human being. From him I learned to always assume positive intent. Whatever anybody says or does, assume positive intent. When I grew up there was no web, blogging or tweeting.

The distance between number one and number two is always a constant. If you want to improve the organization, you have to improve yourself and the organization gets pulled up with you.
That is a big lesson. I cannot just expect the organization to improve if I don't improve myself and lift the organization, because that distance is a constant. The one thing I have learned as a CEO is that leadership at various levels is vastly different.
When I was leading a function or a business, there were certain demands and requirements to be a leader. As you move up the organization, the requirements for leading that organization don't grow vertically; they grow exponentially.
