PepsiCo's Indra Nooyi amongst US' ten 'most humble CEOs'

Washington, Dec. 28 : A latest research of US CEOs has reportedly tried to analyse how many of the business company chiefs are least narcissistic and found that three of the top ten CEOs are women, including Indian-origin PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi.

Dean of Macquarie Graduate School of Management in Sydney, Alex Frino used natural language technology to scour quarterly earnings call transcripts of the 100 largest American companies to calculate the ratio between how frequently CEOs use the pronouns "I," "me" or "mine" versus "we," "our" or "ours."

According to the Washington Post, Frino was able to compile a list of apparent CEO humility that named Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware, Gregg Steinhafel, CEO of Target, and Omar Ishrak, CEO of Medtronic, as the three least narcissistic by that metric.

Women featuring on the list include TJX CEO Carol Meyrowitz, Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson and PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi.

Other less narcissistic CEOs include casino magnate and Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson, the CEO of Las Vegas Sands and Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan.

The report said that Frino's next step in the research is to focus on the link between the narcissistic metric for US CEOs and their respective company's performance, as earlier studies have shown that narcissism isn't necessarily bad.
