  6. 6. Sustainable growth is not something you get into overnight. It is a journey that requires continuing effort.
  7. 7. Each extra move seems logical when made, but expansion without focus leads to disappointment. Capabilities get stretched and complexity increases faster than revenues.

  19. 19. Brands are emotional connections that stay relevant for generations.
  20. 20. No company is an island and it has to build collaborative relationships in the eco system. That can be a powerful lens for growth.
  21. 21. Innovation has three Ms. : Momentum ( winning potential), margin ( profit potential) and materiality ( revenue potential)
  22. 22. Innovation should always ask- how big is the potential, what resources do we need and what time frame of advantage do we have?
  23. 23. Good people have four essential qualities – passion, team players, transformational and are dissatisfied with the way things are.
  24. 24. Under the right circumstances, leaders should focus on defining ambitious goals and then let their managers and teams figure out the answers.
