I was privileged to meet Suresh Narayanan, Chairman and Managing Director, Nestlé India (https://www.linkedin.com/in/suresh-narayanan-65582233) at the recently concluded NASSCOM HR Summit at Chennai.


A very powerful, yet humble, humane person, I found in him a true servant-leader.

He spoke on how Nestlé managed the Maggi Storm.

He gave us 10 principles that we can follow in our personal and professional lives.

  1. There is opportunity in adversity
  2. Do not be afraid of uncertainties
  3. Teamwork and achievement will drive credibility
  4. Always strive for ‘can do’ rather than ‘will try’
  5. People are at the centre of everything we do
  6. We live in a VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity) world – always keep Plan ‘B’ ready
  7. Never lose your winning spirit
  8. Keep your eyes on Reality, Reality, Reality
  9. Constantly communicate – not less but more
  10. Keep to your values. Be humble. Listen. Stay Connected. Above all, Be Human.
