“People imbibe what they see and learn from senior people or people around them,” said N. R. Narayanamurthy, Chief Mentor of Infosys, recently at the time of releasing his book “A better India, A better world.”
Narayanamurthy is sharing his life experience. If I say to my staff members, “I will come at 10 a.m. but you must be here at 8 a.m.” This is not fair. These way things won’t work. While I was working, I used to come at 6 a.m. the reason is that secretaries wake up their children, give them breakfast, take them to school or bus stops, and then take a bus and are here by 7.45a.m. If they can be here then my appreciation for them has to be shown by my being here at 6 a.m. The only way to inculcate any value in younger generation is only if we walk the talk.
