If you feel that your leader or boss actually cares about you, you may feel more serious about the work you do for them.” “Subordinates and employees are not tools or machines that you can just use. They are human beings and deserve to be treated with respect. Make sure you are focusing on their well-being and helping them find the support they need, while also being clear about what your expectations and priorities are. This is a work-based version of ‘tough love’ often seen in parent-child relationships.”You can watch a video on the research below.A Food Scientist Pursuing a Rutgers MBA Creates Perfect Life Nutrition – Rutgers Business School NewsPerfect Life Nutrition founder and current Rutgers Business School MBA Juan Salinas talks about how his path to food science led him to take home the $20,000 top prize at this year’s Rutgers Business Plan Competition.A native of Honduras, Salinas worked at Nabisco, Cadbury, and Power Bar, where he “combined his expertise in food science with knowledge he gained in sports nutrition working on a master’s offered by the International Olympic Committee.”He left the corporate ringer in 2015 to start Perfect Life Nutrition and its flagship P-nuff Crunch Baked Peanut Puff, a plant-based protein snack that satisfied Salinas’ desire to make something “tasty and nutritious.”According to the Rutgers Business School News, Perfect Life Nutrition has since “pushed out two new versions of P-nuff Crunch, both are peanut-based but one is cinnamon-dusted and the other is flavored with cocoa.”You can read the rest of Salinas’ article with Rutgers Business School here.Dodd-Frank a Flop: Columbia Business School Study Recommends Fundamental Reforms for Landmark Financial Regulation – Columbia Business SchoolA decade after the Great Recession hit, new Journal of Applied Corporate Finance research from CBS Professor Charles Calomiris unpacks “numerous flaws in post-crisis financial regulations and proposes modifying or eliminating a number of recently approved financial reforms, including pieces of Dodd-Frank and the Volcker Rule.”Lehman Brothers’ collapse in 2008 was among the first major signs of massive economic distress – Photo via Oli Scarff/Getty ImagesIn a recent interview with the school, Calomiris explains, “The Great Recession created a rush in Washington to establish guardrails for the financial industry. But good intentions, expanded powers, and new mandates do not necessarily lead to smart policy decisions.”“Ten years later, it’s clear that the Dodd-Frank Act and further regulations are failing to curb risky behavior while obstructing economic growth. We can do much better than these costly, unsustainable regulations that will do little to prevent a repeat of the financial crisis.”Calomiris proposes nearly two-dozen reforms to current regulations, including:“Linking financial regulation directly to the performance of the financial sector and demonstrate that regulatory costs are justified by measurable benefits.“Restoring the role of laws and formal rule-making in financial regulation and end the discretionary authority of politicized actors like the FSOC and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.”“Holding regulators accountable to the public by requiring transparent regulatory standards.”Has Financial Regulations Been a Flop?
