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. He is a certified CEO Coach.

7 days ago
Viswanathan "Vishy" Anand is an Indian chess grandmaster and a former World Chess Champion, considered as one of the greatest chess players of all time. Anand was the first recipient of the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award in 1991–92, India's highest sporting honour. In 2007, he was the first sportsman to receive India's second highest civilian award, the Padma Vibhushan.
Harnessing the full potential of our mind and staying relevant in the context of advances in machines is something that all of us wrestle with as we go through our respective journeys. Chess is a great canvas for us to explore perspectives on these two questions.
During the 90 odd minutes that I spent with him in Chennai, Vishy spoke candidly about how he got into Chess as a career, how he thought about his own development at various stages of his growth, how he harnesses his mind and leverages the right brain and the left brain, how EQ matters as one grows through the ranks, how he stays level-headed and grounded despite his towering achievements, his thoughts on harnessing human potential and more.
I hope you find the conversation as purposeful as I did.
