  • Instant Miscommunication - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    to cut down on the amount of time between when we miscommunicate and when we realize and fix it That s why emails work better than texts and phone calls work better than messages The more connected you are to a person the more you can interpret their message and can fix what s being said And the more engaged you are in the conversation the faster you can understand what s really being said The irony is that we all know this but continue to ignore it We continue to send texts to write quickly and to ignore how others might interpret it Significant others we are involved with Parents that we take for granted Bosses that we work with And entire organizations with hundreds of misunderstood messages every single day In all these scenarios we ignore the obvious fact the more we can understand and engage with people with talk to and the more we can put ourselves in other people s shoes the better off we will be In today s world of Instant Miscommunication real human interactions are less frequent but more important than ever before Saturday May 11th 2013 Careers Leadership No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your education story Thank you Chicago for the nomination Apply to Join MLT Apply to Join NLC Learn about the JD MBA program Please Vote Recent Posts Please vote A month in at Winston Strawn 365 Days of Yoga What

  • Putting Yourself in Someone Elses Shoes - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    The homeless person we pass on the street every day there are a lot in Chicago Many times we think why can t this person just find a job instead of asking me for money everyday But maybe maybe they were laid off in the recession or have a long term disability and now can t support themselves And maybe he is an injured war vet who never had got a job due to a disability after being sent back to the US We don t imagine how helpless or emabarrassed he must feel And new colleagues or friends that we disagree with People who not only see the world differently but who also don t know how you see the world because you don t really know them well We get upset quickly when we don t like their tone and when things don t turn out as planned But more often than not it all hinges on a misunderstanding not the thoughtlessness we accuse them of This is even more true with significant others when there is more emotion attached If you put yourself in someone else s shoes you will understand what it is like to be them To see the world how they see it and understand their worries and anxieties But when we do that we also run the risk of being told NO figuring out we were wrong or being forced to compromise our own views That s why most of us don t do it In a world of too many options and too little time it s easier than ever to ignore other people s views and stick with your own But that doesn t make it the best approach Sunday March 17th 2013 Business School 1 Comment to Putting Yourself in

  • Two mistakes MBAs (and all people) make - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    us have seen the downside of these mistakes both personally and professionally But ironically we continue to make again and again Friday March 29th 2013 Business School Careers 1 Comment to Two mistakes MBAs and all people make Kim April 12 2013 Hi Jeremy Thanks so much for your interesting blog posts I wanted to ask you a question about deferring at a law school in hopes of later applying for a 3 year JD MBA program I decided I wanted a JD MBA after I got into law schools this year I already had decided to defer for 1 2 years and work in the start up industry I am deciding right now between deferring at Northwestern and Columbia I received more scholarship money at Northwestern and am still waiting to hear back about financial aid from Columbia One concern I have is whether I will be accepted to the MBA half after 1 2 years of work experience From what I understand I am only allowed to apply to the JD MBA program after I begin my first year of law school Since Kellogg is higher ranking than Columbia s business school I m not sure if I should defer at Columbia to be safe Also the higher financial aid package at Northwestern Law is a huge deal since without any financial aid even a 3 year JD MBA program is too expensive for me How should I approach this decision Thanks and sorry for the long question Kim Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel

    issues your student faces at home you ll never be able to understand them find common ground with them and eventually capture their imagination during class As a lawyer if you represent your own agenda even if it is for justice without understand the pressures they feel you will never be on the same page As the phrase goes if you force them to fight and you lose you ll go home devastated but your client may not have a home to go to And as a leader you won t even be remotely as good as you could be if you can t imagine life through my eyes Understand what inspires me and how I view the world When we extend our hand it usually means we have the time or resources to help We give quick advice We give a small donation And then we re on our way But when we extend our heart we do it because we understand what it s like to be them We put ourselves in their shoes for just a second It takes more time and it s a lot more risky It s a whole lot easier to extend your hand to someone But it s a lot harder to extend our hearts That s why there are not many TRULY GREAT lawyers marketers and leaders Just a thought Tuesday January 22nd 2013 Careers Leadership No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your
