It is a saying one of her mentors shared and it felt apropos after defeating the legendary Tara Vanderveer and the Stanford Cardinal. “I told my team like, I just love them so much and I don’t want to stop having this feeling. so, who knows?

Silicon Valley Bank Lacked Digital Age Management
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin On the surface, Gregory Becker, CEO of the iconic Silicon Valley Bank (SVB VB ), fitted the conventional image of a corporate leader: self-confident, commanding, articulate, and inspirational. SVB’s mission was impeccable: to increase the probability of its clients' success. Its values were admirable: empathy, integrity, diversity, and responsibility. But success in the digital economy does not depend on a big speeches from a guy at the top. Meeting today’s daunting challenges requires management in which everyone leads and contributes to solving problems in a complex, rapidly changing context. Conventional leadership at the top is only one facet of digital age management, not vice versa. The End Of SVB Was Abrupt On March 7, Gregory Becker was speaking boldly to a high-profile crowd at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco about the future of Silicon Valley in general and his bank in particular, which had almost $200 … [Read more...] about Silicon Valley Bank Lacked Digital Age Management

Is There a Constitutional Case to Be Made Against Interest-Rate Caps?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin On May 2, 1895, the state legislature in New York enacted a law that said “No employee shall be required or permitted to work in a biscuit, bread or cake bakery or confectionary establishment more than 60 hours in any one week, or more than 10 hours in any one day.” It all reads as so compassionate, as legislation said to be born of good intentions tends to. Except there was more to the story. As George Will wrote in his 2019 book The Conservative Sensibility , the law was meant to protect large, unionized bakeries from what Will described as competition from “small, family-owned, non-unionized competitors that depended on flexible work schedules.” Utica, NY bakery owner Joseph Lochner was fined $50 “for violating the limits [the New York state law] it placed on the employees of his Utica bakery.” Will went on to conclude that Lochner “and his employees had a right, absent a compelling government interest, to voluntarily … [Read more...] about Is There a Constitutional Case to Be Made Against Interest-Rate Caps?
