The appointment of Satya Nadella as CEO of the iconic Microsoft has given us a reason to take pride in the success of a fellow Indian.
The biggest lesson that we can learn from Satya Nadella is that he went to average schools and colleges, climbed the ladder of success on his own merit and still remains a humble guy.
According to Reuters in India, Nadella is the son of a government official who worked in Hyderabad with the Indian Administrative Service, and he attended the Hyderabad Public School, alongside his future wife.
Later, he studied electrical engineering as undergraduate in Mangalore, “When all other students will quietly listen to what I would teach, he will ask a lot of questions — ‘why it has to be like this, why can’t we do it like this?’” one of his Manipal University professors told Reuters. “Sometimes, it felt like he was just testing my patience.”
