The Characteristics of The School of Sharks

This is the kind of work dynamic that values relationships more than their well-being.

  • Business results matter the most for them
  • Relationships are transactional. They only value relationships based on their utility: for acquiring money, success, or prestige.
  • Many of them work unmanageable hours but are expected to accept it and not complain
  • " Winners win and anyone who falters is lunch"

This kind of workplace may get your the business results you need but the cost is their ever so often burnout and where people aren't loyal.
