How to cope with not getting the promotion
Interpret being passed over for a promotion as meaning "not now" instead of "not ever," writes Debbie Messemer, managing partner at KPMG San Francisco. Respond to the rejection gracefully, but allow yourself a day to process the disappointment. Fortune (4/8)

Does going to B-school make you a better boss?

MBA programs can impart the philosophy of leadership and certain skills such as communication, but business professor John Van Maanen argues that on-the-job experience is needed before graduates can become real leaders. "The idea that such skills can be transmitted so that you can lead anybody at any time, that's ideologically vacuous," Van Maanen says. The New York Times (tiered subscription model) (4/7)

Balancing Yourself
Why mindfulness needs to be practiced in moderation
Mindfulness techniques such as meditation can be beneficial, but they can also lead people to avoid stressful situations and tough conversations, says executive coach David Brendel.

The Water Cooler
JPMorgan software identifies potentially rogue workers
Sally Dewar, JPMorgan Chase's head of regulatory affairs for Europe, is overseeing an algorithmic program that identifies employees who might go rogue. The software considers dozens of factors, including whether an employee violates trading rules or fails to attend compliance classes. "It's very difficult for a business head to take what could be hundreds of data points and start to draw any themes about a particular desk or trader," Dewar said. "The idea is to refine those data points to help predict patterns of behavior." Bloomberg (4/8)
