From intern to CEO

The messages and experiences from Enrique Lores, CEO of HP Inc. are so inspiring.

Enrique started his career as an intern at HP, and moved all the way to CEO of HP in the past 30+ years. He shared passion, consistent learning, and thinking are key factors for his success. This actually reconciles deliver happiness, read books, and think 10 minutes every day.

When talking about coronavirus pandemic impact, he mentioned it will change the mindset of WFH opportunity for many CEOs, and for manufactures, need to globalize supply chain, and etc.

He used a garage background in the video call, and that garage was the place where Hewlett and Packard began their company in Palo Alto. This implies his love to HP. If we want to succeed, we need to love the work, be passionate about the work.

He also talked about caring community, caring company, DNA of the company, diversity, innovations, work and life equally important, and many many insights.

When talking about his leadership style, Enrique shared the following points:
  • imagination and belief
  • risk management
  • strategy and execution balance
  • team work
Soft with people, but tough with problems. This is my key takeaway from his sharing. This is impressive.
