NUGGET CONTEXT Arun talks about the downsides of being a good listener and
says that sometimes, it might be harder for people to notice you given the
noise around them. He also goes on to talk about how sometimes, we embark on a
path of making some noise (through marketing, branding etc.) to be heard but
he says that sometimes that path changes who we are in the process and by the
time we get to the point where we are being heard, we may not be the same
listeners any more that we were when we started out. He quotes Sir John
Dalberg-Acton and says that “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power
corrupts absolutely”. GUEST Arun Maira is a former member of the Planning
Commission of India and former Chairman of BCG India. He had a distinguished
career in Tata Motors (then called TELCO) and rose to be on the Board of the
company. He then had to relocate to the US due to a personal situation and had
to reinvent himself at 45\\. He has written several books, the most recent one
being “Listening for well-being: Conversations with people not like us”. In
our conversation, we discuss some of his key transitions post Tata Motors to
the world of Advisory Services. We talk about how he went about making some of
those choices and settled into the new context. We also deep-dive into his
book on Listening and discuss its impact on various domains. We talk about the
art of asking deeper questions, how we could steer through listening, how we
can have tough conversations and give hard feedback by listening, the trade-
off between richness and reach of conversations and more. Published in
