Tips from CEOS

  1. 1. Tips from CEOs Many of the following CEOs have seen dramatic ups and downs over the course of their careers. The advice they give should help to inspire anyone, no matter what stage in their career they are.
  2. 2. Joe Rigby, CEO of Pepco Holdings • “Don‘t worry too much about the material things. Be sure to experience life because this isn’t a dress rehearsal—it’s happening right now.”
  3. 3. Rick Goings, CEO of Tupperware Brands • “It is both interesting and understandable that our resumes, bios, and even public introductions mostly focus on achievements, awards, and honors. And that’s nice! Yet it is often our failures, flops, and even face plants that are the most vital part of shaping us. These are the things that make us.”
  4. 4. Jeffrey Katzenberg, co-founder of Dreamworks • “I don’t think it matters how small or how big the task is, if you can do it just a little bit better than what is expected, you will be noticed and rewarded.”
  5. 5. Indra Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo • “Never stop learning. Whether you’re an entry level employee fresh out of college or a CEO, you don’t know it all. Admitting this is not a sign of weakness. The strongest leaders are those who are lifelong students.”
  6. 6. Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs • “My advice is to focus on becoming a complete person. Everyone should focus on the content of his or her job, of course. But work is not the end; it’s a means to an end. You owe it to yourself to open up to broader interests. And in the end, it will be better for your career because you will be more interesting and attractive to others.”
  7. 7. Francisco D’Souza, CEO of Cognizant • “In a world of scarcity, the critical skill is to maximize opportunities. In the new world, where everything is abundant, the critical skill is to make good choices. We will have more opportunities in our lives than we could possibly have time to pursue. So the choices we make have even more significance.”
  8. 8. Robert Hohman, CEO of Glassdoor • “At a macro level, really the most important thing you can do when getting a job is to be informed. • Be informed, understand the company that you're interviewing with. Make sure it's the company that you think it is and it's really a fit for you — culturally, their mission, vision, and values standpoint. • Then, make it your business to understand that company: its issues, its problems, its challenges. And talk about them in the interview. When someone shows up and has done their homework, it's so stark and it stands out.”
  9. 9. Stewart Butterfield, co-founder of Flickr and Slack • “Some people will know exactly what they want to do at a very young age, but the odds are low. I feel like people in their early- to mid-20s are very earnest. They're very serious, and they want to feel like they've accomplished a lot at a very young age rather than just trying to figure stuff out. So I try to push them toward a more experimental attitude.”
  10. 10. Steve Jobs, founder of Apple • “You can´t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you will have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”
  11. 11. To conclude… • The common theme took from these CEOs is to never give up. Each of them have suffered set-backs at some point in their life but it did not stop them pursuing their dreams. • You also have to have trust in yourself, take risks, don’t be afraid of failure and always go the extra mile.
