Mouli underscores the criticality of having sound mentors in todays world where there are more forks in the road and several choices to be made for all of us. Mouli also talks about his framework for how we all should think about selecting the mentors that guide us. He talks about how Mentors should have seen some parts of the “movie” that you haven’t and should be completely vested in your success with no conflict of interest.

In this podcast conversation, Mouli talks about the notion of TMRR for leaders to turbocharge their personal growth, the concept of learning cycles when it comes to thinking about experiences, sowing the seeds for the second half in the first half, decoupling a quit decision and a join decision, impact of life on work and the role of values in personal growth and leadership.
