MANAGING in the

NEW WORLD

Jerrold Fine has been a pioneer in the field of hedge funds, having successfully run one of its most successful avatars on Wall Street. He has been a voracious reader, which eventually compelled him to pen down his novel- Make Me Even and I’ll Never Gamble Again. He speaks about how honesty and integrity are most important to any professional’s career. Sometimes devastating experiences can have a profound impact on people. Due to these, obligations may abound. Financial security and diversity in cultural choices are also to be cherished. Management training sessions he feels can elevate the existing skill levels. But they need to be conducted in cohort with strong family values, to make a lasting contribution.

It has often been observed that people are better at resolving others’ problems, while struggling when the same befalls them. This was tested through a hypothesis recently by researchers from several Chinese universities. It was found out that yes people chose differently. But it also emerged that while speaking for themselves, the subjects had a cautious mindset. This emerged from studying the minute details about oneself. The same people had an adventurous mindset when it came to choosing from others, as the ideas emerged from a broad understanding. This piece of business intelligence must be used by human resource professionals as the same plays out when seeking salary increments. While vouching for others, professionals are quite up front, but cautious when it comes to their own turn.
