Play to Potential Podcast
About This Show
This Podcast is created and curated by Deepak Jayaraman (an Executive Coach and a Leadership Advisor). He lives in Mumbai and is the CEO of Transition Insight where he works with successful Senior Executives by helping them play to their potential but with a sharp focus on transitions (business or career). The two questions "where to play and how to win" are pertinent not only to businesses but also to leaders who are shaping their careers and their leadership through all the complexity and opportunity around.
Guests on this podcast range across backgrounds and contexts. The conversations cover topics around Leadership, Transitions and Careers. Given that time is scarce and that you might be interested in only some of the segments of the podcast, the conversations have been broken down into nuggets to facilitate easier consumption. This is also a learning journey that the Podcast host Deepak Jayaraman is going through. At the end of each nugget he shares his key takeaway(s) in the context of his experiences.
Deepak is an alumnus of IIT Madras, IIM Ahmedabad and London Business School. Prior to Starting Transition Insight, he has been a Business Consultant at KPMG Consulting in UK/India, Strategy Consultant with McKinsey & Co. in the US and a Leadership Consultant (Executive Search, Board placements, Leadership Development) at EgonZehnder.
