IndusInd Bank Romesh Sobti got the best advice from one of his bosses at Grindlays Bank that success is not only the consequence of our individual skills and determination but also an enabling social and professional ecosystem which we tend to abandon as we move up in life.

This one is clearly etched in my mind. I got this advice more than 25 years ago and it accompanied a piece of good news - a promotion. The counsel came from one of my bosses at Grindlays Bank, who was giving me my second promotion in three years and perhaps thought it appropriate to remind me of the virtues of level-headedness and humility as one scrambled up the organisational ladder.

But looking back, I see more in this simple message: that success is not only the consequence of our individual skills and determination but also an enabling social and professional ecosystem which we tend to abandon as we move up in life.
