September 19, 2018 07:53

00:00 / 04:42

NUGGET CONTEXT Arun discusses his definition of a leader – “she or he who
takes the first steps towards something that she or he deeply cares about and
in ways that others wish to follow”. He talks about the criticality of
listening to what other people care about as a key element of building
engagement and followership. 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.
