“I hate hierarchy and do everything possible to prevent it from intruding on ideas”

“What was that? Surely, you did not say that. Right?” Prasna Rao** seemed a little shocked by that strong statement.

“No, Prasna. It is Piyush Pande, Chairman of Ogilvy South Asia and Creative Director. I interviewed him nearly three years ago. We talked about a number of things about managing a creative, ideas-led organisation.”

“So why are you bringing it up again?”

“Because what he said then is still relevant today.”

**Prasna Rao is an unusual friend. He appears every time I start writing something. He is almost always there when I am writing my blog. He asks questions that are razor sharp and often makes me uncomfortable. He is relentless till I answer his questions in simple, clear terms.  You might find that he is most of the times asking questions that you want to. Therefore he is on your side, while he is putting me in the dock. I call him my Uninvited Coach
