    Training Elite Wall Street Traders - Michael Steiner on his time at SIG, using games to train market makers & becoming a high school teacher

    Training Elite Wall Street Traders - Michael Steiner on his time at SIG, using games to train market makers & becoming a high school teacher

    Mike Steiner found himself on Penn’s campus at a young age not really knowing what he was supposed to do next. Thanks to helpful roommates, he started to figure out how to take advantage of the opportunities around him. He started getting more interested in math, statistics, and finance. He eventually ended up interviewing in New York and ending up at the famous training firm Susquehanna Investment Group (SIG). As a part-time trainer at first and then in a more central role, Mike started to experiment with different ways of teaching things like market making, probability, thinking in bets, and the behaviors needed to "make it" in the trading pits.
    This conversation was a delight and I think you'll enjoy it. We cover:

    Ending up at Penn and not really knowing what he was going to do
    Figuring out he enjoyed math and finance
    Getting a job at SIG
    Joining the training team
    Leaving finance to spend more time with his kids
    Becoming a high school teacher
    How he thinks about teaching & mentorship
    His 20-year journey in creating his game "Stockslam"

    The Power of Play In Work & Life - Gary Ware is Leading A Playful Rebellion

    The Power of Play In Work & Life - Gary Ware is Leading A Playful Rebellion

    Gary Ware is someone that inspires me. I've seen him give two walks, both at the World Domination Summit in 2018 and then in 2022.  In each, he stood out for his ability to show up as himself and share playful and powerfully true stories about his journey.  I love when I get to meet people like Gary and this interview was no different.  You can feel his positive energy flowing through the screen (or earbuds!).
