I came across R Gopalakrishnan's writings over 10 years back & was stuck by their authenticity & their applicability. So when he came out with his new book 'When the Penny Drops' now, I rushed to get my copy.

'When the Penny Drops' lives up to the expectations. Mr. Gopalakrishnan talks about learning in this book and explains how 97% of learning happens informally, intuitively, on the job. And then he describes the most important moment in learning - 'when the penny drops'.
He explains that for a manager - there are three worlds - the inner world, the world of relationships and the world of `Getting Things Done' through others. He then builds a framework using some very vivid examples from his work life to develop his story. The book aims to encourage you to reflect on yourself. It will help you learn by 'identifying the success mantras embedded in you and releasing the lessons that might be entrapped within yourself'.

My key takeaways from the book:

1. Most of the times, we are unable to hear the penny drop - trapped as we are by listening & learning disabilities. However, when mind is really open, we can hear it & get precious insights into self.
2. The more experiences you have, the more hard knocks you get, the more you are likely to learn
3. Learning positive things is easy, negative is difficult. Negative things are best learnt by self-reflection.
4. Everyone feel that they have been unjust treated by their employer when it comes to promotions / rewards.
5. Training programs are good to have - particularly the all-expense paid overseas ones - but they cannot help beyond a point. They help a bit, at most 10%, but the balance 90% must come from within.
6. Creating the challenge, the adversity and a pressure packed situation is not difficult to do. Ensuring that people learn something useful from it is the most difficult part.
7. For any person, her dreams & ambitions are self-evident & unique though that may not appear so to others.
8. When someone hurts us/contradicts us publicly we remember that to our last day; but when we do the same to others, we forget that very fast.

If I were to summarize the book in one phrase, I would take a quote by JRD Tata that was carried in this book - originally appearing in The Joy of Achievement by R M Lala:
One thing I regret is having never being in line management except in the airlines. As I had no technical training, I always liked to consult the experts. At times I felt like a soldier who had never been an officer catapulted to be a General. When I have to make a decision, I feel that I must make sure that:
- the superior knowledge of my advisors confirms the soundness of my decision;
- secondly, that they would execute my decision not reluctantly but being convinced about it;
- thirdly, I see myself in Tatas as the leader of a team, who has to weigh the impact of any decision on other Tata companies, on the unity of the group.
