This may be the shortest post ever on Hard Lessons—it is a link to a Washington Post interview with Unilever CEO, Paul Polman.
A few teasers:
He is “ashamed of the amount of money I earn.”
“Just being a CEO in itself is not success. I would not relate success to a title or position.”
“I don’t have any frustrations. It sounds a little silly, but life is too short for me. I don’t worry about all the things that happen, I just think about what to do with them.”
If you are a bit—or a lot skeptical—about CEOs, this will give you a glimmer of hope. The business world needs more like Paul Polman.
