Assume Positive Intent

Fortune Magazine asked a bunch of “leaders” to relate the best advice they ever received. It’s a routine feature, except for the advice of Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO of Pepsi, who says her father told her to, “always assume positive intent.”

As the title of this blog might indicate, this is a near impossibility for me. In fact, I generally assume the opposite. That said, this strikes me as good advice and I am going to try and take it.

Yeah, Yup, Absolutely.
