Oh Look Someone On Wall Street Doesn’t Understand How People Learn

posted in: Career 0 |

Let me fix it for you, what JPMorgan is really doing, is weeding out anyone who might actually want to work differently than the way Wall Street has always worked.

It’s almost like they have no interest in actual diversity, employee mental health, or work-life balance. Of course, we know they don’t. Wealth Management isn’t about the people who work for you, it’s about how much money they bring in, period.… Read More

Linked: Brain Research Confirms Stupidity Of Back-to-Back Meetings

The research just proves that we already know from first-hand experience, right? We’ve all been in back-to-back meetings, leaving one Microsoft Teams or Zoom call just to click the link to another, and it’s obvious which team members have done that and aren’t mentally prepared for the current meeting.

We all know it. We all schedule our meeting to end at 25 or 55 past the hour so that we don’t make people do that, and then we still run to the top or bottom of the hour anyway. Sometimes even over.

Proving, once again, that we suck at meetings. And yes, I include myself in that.… Read More

Do You Have Work Boundaries?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

t’s also about being respected enough to allow our work to actually fit into the rest of our lives, as opposed to having it interfere with the rest of our lives. Human beings have boundaries between their work and the rest of their lives. Numbers on a financial sheet are generally not provided that level of respect and concern. Which one would best describe the people who work for you in the culture you have created?

You might be very surprised to learn that it’s not what you thought it was from your view in the C-Suite.… Read More

Linked: Want to be an effective mentor in 2021? Talk about mental health

This is really the big question many of us have, and rightfully so. Hopefully, your workplace is smart enough to encourage you to disconnect during off hours, or take care of your mental health needs, and speak up if you’re feeling burned out. But, what do we do if that same employer also rewards the folks who don’t do any of that? How does an employee keep up healthy boundaries and not get left behind in their career when they watch the peers who work all hours of the day/night, never disconnect, and work in an absolutely non-sustainable way are praised for their “grit and commitment”, and maybe even promoted over folks who work harder at maintaining a sustainable work-life balance?… Read More

Linked: The problem isn’t remote working – it’s clinging to office-based practices

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Most things that I hear managers and CEO’s complain about remote working, like how their team feels disconnected, or suffers from “Zoom fatigue”, or might not be spending every minute of the 9-5 working for the company, are things that should have been true for those of us who worked remotely prior to 2020, but it wasn’t true.

When you design, and manage, for remote work, instead of forcing everyone to be in more meaningless meetings just so you can “see” them, or track their activities every minute of the day, these issues don’t exist.… Read More

Linked: How Different Personality Types Cope with an Always-On Culture

Reading Time: 1 minute

The issue in mid-2021 is that there are a lot of people who have found ways to balance that suits them, and they are all a little different. So, after a year of figuring out the best way to handle our work and personal lives, individually, companies are forcing everyone back into the same template. The flexibility we had to find what works best for us as an individual, is gone. We all have to adjust back to whatever works for the CEO making this decision, as opposed to what works for us as individuals.

It’s hard to imagine that there are so many managers and executives who don’t understand this. Or maybe they just don’t care?… Read More
