Should leaders throw temper tantrums?
When Indra Nooyi became the CEO of Pepsico in 2006, she met Steve Jobs who advised her that as a CEO she should sometimes raise her voice, change her tone, and show her anger and disapproval.
As the head of Pepsico for 12 years, Nooyi used this valuable tool of ‘not always being nice’ to her advantage, and she credits Jobs for having taught her this powerful lesson. She learned to pound tables, raise her voice, and demonstrate anger, and obtained phenomenal results too!
