Mythological Lessons Educational Background Family Background

Co-creation: Active Listening


Once a young boy named Ashish Sharma tweeted:
Congrats mahindra sir M&M rocks waiting

for your superbike can you please tell where we can gain info about them Anand Mahindra: Tell me what engine displacement and other specialty you expects in an Indian Superbike

Co-creation: Active Listening


Ashish Sharma: Sir in my opinion the displacement should be large to increase the torque and higher pick up. It can have multi point sparking to increase power..spray ignition is a new idea..clearance must be high as for Indian roads Anand Mahindra: ok I will look into the technicalities with my team.

Highly Engaged
Mr. Mahindra never sits idle and always keeps himself busy.
If not business, then it is his voracious reading

or social networking that keeps him abreast with the current global scenario as well as helps him to be a social person.

Accessible
Anand Mahindra is a person who can be easily

approached by any employee irrespective of the position he/she holds in the organizational hierarchy. Once an employee of Mahindra pulled his attention to the harassments and problems in the company by sending him the online links.

Responsive to customers
Once a common customer Chirag Agrawal informed him via social networking site:
Could hardly speak to sales person of

Mahindra in bajrag Haldwani. They dont pick phones & dont try calling back. I know you are a quite brand AM replied: I will give feedback to Haldwani dealer. Thanks

Futuristic approach
He has determined that it was time now to look beyond the telecom focus.
There were a number of companies we had

looked at. He had actually approached Mr (Ramalinga) Raju a year before this had happened proposing some kind of alliance between the companies

Visionary & Contrarian


On January 6th, 2010 Mr Mahindra surprised many by announcing

his intention to build an Indian version of Embraer

Bangalore-based Mahindra Aerospace, a group company that

recently acquired two small Australian aerospace companies.


His ability to look beyond the stock price and quarterly results have

helped grow both his group and its individual businesses


Another brand new business his group is interested in, according to

Mr Mahindra, is renewable energy.
