Carlos Ghosn is my idol.

I came across learning about Carlos Ghosn when doing some researches at work. Known as father of Nissan Revival Plan, this guy is a source of endless inspiration.

Some of his quotes that have definitely taught me something.

  • You’ll never convince me there is a hopeless situation or there is any finality in any success or any failure.
  • If you have not been a villain at a certain point in time, you will never be a hero. And the day you are a hero, you may become a villain the next day.
  • Incentives are not strategy. They are tactics. Defensive measures.
  • You have to listen to the people who have a negative opinion as well as those who have positive opinion. Just to make sure that you are blending all these opinions in your mind before a decision is made.
  • I think that the best training a top manager can be engaged in is management by example.
  • I mean, when you’re a pioneer and you are at the forefront of an offensive, you’re going to be the most optimistic person.
  • I don’t believe in hostile moves. I don’t believe they carry any value.
  • The role of leadership is to transform the complex situation into small pieces and prioritize them.
