    Goldman Sachs, 100+ Hour Work Weeks and Millennials

    Goldman Sachs, 100+ Hour Work Weeks and Millennials

    Richard Lummis is on assignment this week so I am pleased to host Alyson Van Hooser, well know leadership consultant and coach. She is a partner at Van Hooser Associates. In this episode, we discuss the story of the Goldman Sachs employees and their PP slide deck about working 100+ hours per week. What does this tell us about priorities of and the leadership of Millennials. Highlights include: 

    Many of us worked very long hours early in our professional careers. It does several things: Forces you to learn about a wide variety of topics, work under pressure, weeds out the go-getters from those only along for the ride, ETC. It also makes it very difficult for women who are young mothers. What are your thoughts on a 100+ work week from a leadership perspective?

    How does this type of attitude work for Millennials?

    Will businesses, managers and employers have to adjust?

    I have worked very long hours but never complained because that’s ‘just the way it was’ or it was expected or some other reason. What is it about millennials that they would speak up about that type of treatment?

    Also at least I could commiserate with my peers about the long hours. But in Covid-19 everyone is working from home and there is largely no support. Has that made a difference?

    How to Brief Senior Leadership

    How to Brief Senior Leadership

    Richard Lummis and I are back for another episode of 12 O’Clock High, a podcast on business leadership. Today, we take up the issue of how to brief senior leadership in an organization. This podcast is based upon a recent Harvard Business Review article How to Brief a Senior Executive by Grant T. Harris. Harris notes in his article, “Briefing a senior executive is an art and adept White House staffers do it every day under the most stressful of circumstances. They’re masters of compressing the right information into the right amount of time, no matter how complex the topic or short the briefing. The skills needed to brief the chief executive in the Oval Office are directly applicable to briefing any executive in the C-suite.”
    Some of the highlights include:
    1.     Before You Walk into the Room (or Log in) 
    a.    Identify the “crucial nodder.” 
    b.    Know your boss’s “tells.” 
    c.     Find out how the boss engages with the material.
    d.     Plan for gradations of success and failure. 
    e.     Keep an idea alive to fight another day or, in the best-case scenario, go bigger and faster in implementation.
    2.     In the Room (or on the Video Conference Call)
    a.     Read the room, not your notes. Whether the briefing is in person or virtual, you need to read cues and body language. In short, “take cues, not notes.” 
    b.     Stay laser focused on your task. 
    c.     Practice the art of staying silent. 
    3.     What does it all mean?
