‘Reward Risk Taking’

According to Pichai, companies need to encourage and reward the people who take risks. It leads to better innovation and better ideas. He also said that he personally pulls people up and supports them if he knows that they have knowingly taken risks and chosen the smartest option available to them.

He also said that in a big organisation, there are instances when different groups do not come on the same page while making a decision. It then becomes the role of a leader to remove the bottlenecks and keep the work going. He also said that productivity is not only about your performance but how you enable the whole organisation to perform.

Enjoys YouTube

Talking about his hobby, Pichai said that he enjoys watching YouTube videos on various topics. Mostly, he watches videos related to AI or physics. Apart from this, he also likes watching football and cricket with his family.

Pichai was brought up in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. After completing his engineering from India, he went to Stanford University and completed MS in Material Science. He later did his MBA from Wharton. Pichai joined Google in 2004 and is considered one of the most important people in the world today.
