In order to navigate the complex world of business, it is important to embrace boundaryless thinking (Unmukt) and design thinking. In this ninth episode in the “UnMukt: Science & Art of Design Thinking” series, Arun Jain, Chairman and Managing Director of Intellect, explores the intricacies of active listening. The mind goes through several processes during listening, such as language interpretation, contextualisation, and response formulation, which can be compared to CPUs in a computer managing specific tasks. However, having multiple processes or thoughts active at once can lead to distractions and disruptions. To effectively listen and engage with the speaker, Arun says it’s essential to align and concentrate on one task or thought at a time.
