Indra Nooyi, chairman and CEO of Pepsi, discusses focusing on your current skill, having a "hip pocket" skill, and courage.
(upbeat music)…- I'm sure you meet with people all the time…that say, "Indra, I want to be you.…"I want to be sitting where you're sitting in 20 years."…What kind of advice do you give people…who have these major aspirations?…- I'm glad, and I will be even happier…if more people came up to me and said,…"I want to be a CEO."…"What does it take to get there?"…Because that means people have hopes and dreams…and they feel the system will allow them to get there.…So that's a good thing.…Let me tell you what I typically tell them.…First, don't start by saying I want to be CEO.…
Because the minute you get obsessed…about wanting to be the CEO,…you forget what you have to do.…Because you're more focused on the next job and the next job…as opposed to doing the current job very, very well.…So advice number one,…don't get fixated on your CEO aspiration.…Focus on doing the current job you have so (beep) well,…that people say "Nobody else can do that job…"as well as Dan's doing it."…So I think it's critically important to focus…
