One of the current topics in the scrum discussion about leadership in the job environment at the C-suite level is the issue of motivation v inspiration. It is a nuanced discussion and it is tied into our current cultural metamorphosis in the workplace including such things as Work From Home v office work.
As the pandemic winds down (it is, right?), persons who worked from home are returning to their original office locations. Big companies like JPMorganChase are starting to make it real.
Jamie Dimon, CEO/Chairman of JPMorganChase has made his intentions clear: “I’m about to cancel all my Zoom meetings. I’m done with it.”
This sentiment, it is time to go back to work, is becoming more prevalent.
Big Red Car here. The Boss is in the Boat skiing, so I got the housesitter again. Me and the housesitter, we get along quite well because that young man knows how to run wild and free just like a Big Red Car loves to do. [Do NOT tell The Boss but we going to be touring the Christmas lights with a bit of mulled wine and some lovelies. Anyway, that’s the plan.]
So before The Boss left for the Boat, I overheard him talking to a CEO who was struggling with motivation. Every CEO does eventually. CEOing is a draining business.
