The Human Side of Finance | Episode 2 | Can you find success and happiness in banking?
Welcome to the second episode of the Human Side of Finance podcast series, brought to you by ICMA Future Leaders and Humans in Finance. In “Can you find success and happiness in banking?” we gather insights from Stuart Smith, a Performance Consultant specialising in Performance Psychology, as well as Cyrus Ardalan, Chairman of Citigroups international investment banking subsidiary Citi Global Markets Ltd, on a question that receives ever greater focus in the industry. We discuss the stereotypes of working 15 hours a day, what the purpose of a banker really is and how this may be connected to ones happiness, but also why ‘high-achievers’ are shifting away from ‘excellence at any (mental) cost’.
