Though the order of reading had changed, after checking the book on what ceo wants, this was fantastic Learning what s not being taught is currently most important to keep climbing the corporate ladders In every individual there is as much evidence of boosters such as ambition, self confidence, hard work and sheer grit, as there are bonsai traps, such as arrogance, eccentricity, volatility and jealousy Yes, we all have our dark side For instance, a universal trap which most managers fall into is I am better than my competent peers Managing our negative impulses is vital for success Unfortunately, this is not taught to us It comes from experience, that of our own and the experience of others Self help books can be monotonous, but not if you are reading real life stories and imbibing from the experience of others R Gopalakrishnan, who as we all know is currently the executive director at Tata Sons This book is sprinkled with real life anecdotes, emanating from either the author s own rich experience of over forty decades in the highest echelons of corporate life or borrowed from experiences of others As the author states Reading about the learning experiences of others and listening to their stories accelerates learning I have reviewed this book for the BCASJ and you can find the link herehttp booksonmyshelves.blogspot.com Best E Book, When The Penny Drops By R Gopalakrishnan This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book When The Penny Drops , Essay By R Gopalakrishnan Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You A very intriguing and interestingly written management book Definitely with a difference, easy read with bigger meaning.Must read. After Having Read What CEO really wants from you from the same author, I was a little apprehensive that I might end up reading the same stuff, but surprisingly When the Penny Drops took me to a different world altogether This book as the title says is about learning what is not taught, a philosophy with which I find myself in resonance The book is full of anecdotes power packed advises for anyone who is venturing into the field of management.This is one of those books, after reading of which you feel like the philosophy has rubbed off on you to a great extent, but its the character of a person which would make this feeling stuck. This is a good guide, I feel, to the youth who are beginning a corporate career and also, it definitely helps veterans in any industry on how to better interact with their peers, boss or juniors Maybe, if I d bought this book much before I joined my first MNC, I wouldn t have job hopped much It is very reader friendly laced with easy to understand concepts and some inspiring stories too Stories of Ratan Tata and also everyday managers you see at your office.Although I liked the effort taken by the author Gopalakrishnan to keep the book simple sweet, I didn t feel anything new or out of the ordinary from reading the insights or positive points interpreted from each true life story That may be due to the many other self help books I ve read which essentially say the same things Still this book has lots of common wisdom conveyed back to us in a refreshing manner, and that would immensely help us if we allow them to be a permanent part of our professional or personal lives. The book has been written in an easy to read manner which imparts good managerial wisdom in the form of examples and stories One never really gets tired of learning that way, so because someone with a knack for observing every day situations and deriving worthwhile lessons out of them has made it easier for most people to look at the cases closely, and derive personal lessons out of them.If you want to be a great manager, and want to get insights which will help you on your way there, pick up a copy The teaching style is in alignment with a elective program R Gopalakrishnan had put together for the IIM A interesting and worthwhile. the book has been written by experienced manager so do expect stories which might have taught lessons to him but it is an interesting and quick finish a book from which you would definitely learn something if you are less experienced manager unlike others this book doesn t give you any tool or something similar to practically use in your day to day life but you would surely take away what you want out of it. Thought provoking book to me Though meant for the leaders and managers, the book made me realise certain aspects as a person Easy and quick read Author explains the concepts used in the book most of all the notes contains books that are worth reading as well. Excellent bookLike the Bonsai Manager, this book has been written in a very lucid, practical manner with lots of live examples Must read for all professionals at all levels.
