“Your attitude is more important than your aptitude. Be a part of that 20% in your organization which contributes towards 80% of the work, “said Ms. Sulajja Firodia Motwani, Founder and CEO, Kinetic Green Energy and Power Solutions Ltd and Vice Chairperson, Kinetic Engineering Ltd. She was addressing diplomates and students at the 41st annual convocation of the Institute of Management Development and Research (IMDR), Pune, held on 5th March 2016. IMDR is the oldest B-school in Pune and a pioneer in management education since 1974. Students from the batch of 2013-15 received Post Graduate Diplomas in Management at the function held in IMDR.
Ms Firodia urged students to work hard and be team players. “You have to market yourself and not only work hard but be seen to be working hard”, she said. “ Don’t wait for that promotion. It’s upto you to take yourself forward. “ She asked students to “be aware of their choices”. “ All of you have unique gifts but life is a series of choices. Make use of your gifts but be aware of your choices. For instance your intellect is your gift but kindness is a choice”, she said.
