Showing your emotions at work used to be considered taboo; crying for women at work could be a career killer. Jennifer joins Molly Fay on The Morning Blend to talk about how this sentiment may be changing with the remote work/hybrid work environment we now find ourselves in and how the benefits of Emotional Intelligence EQ have been increasingly highlighted as valuable for managers to have.
Jennifer joins Dr. Vince Molinaro on Lead the Future to discuss how senior leaders can prepare for human capital challenges when undergoing a merger or acquisition, as well as how leaders themselves can navigate the changing and often ambiguous environment that arises post M&A.
Jennifer joined Molly Fay on The Morning Blend this month to talk about leadership personalities and how to have success at work no matter what style of boss you work for.
The Recent studies show that 75% of people who quit their jobs are actually quitting their boss. Understanding your boss’ style and how to work with it will set you up for success. It could mean the difference between thriving or diving at work.
Uncertainty is not to be avoided and it’s not to be tolerated. According to Jennifer Fondrevay, we need to wholeheartedly embrace uncertainty and redirect our focus to the things we can control, our Talent, Effort, and Attitude. By embracing uncertainty, we will create our own opportunities and discover a fulfilling career and life.

Jennifer was honored to speak at ACG’s April InterGrowth conference. On the panel “Managing Post-Transaction Integration: How to Achieve Cultural & Operational Success,” experts shared their experiences and advice for how to ensure M&A deals have positive outcomes.
The merging of two entities will undoubtedly ruffle some feathers, and human capital should be the focus of developing an effective post-transaction strategy. Yet Jennifer notes that the people of a merged entity are rarely the focus of post-transaction due diligence, and are more often an afterthought.
Trust, she said, is “critical to business success.” Yet it can dissipate virtually overnight following a merger because the majority of post-transaction integration planning is focused elsewhere. And in trust’s absence, an “us-versus-them” mentality can emerge that threatens to derail post-transaction success.
As part of The Teller’s continued content series on mergers and acquisitions in banking, Chris McGuire spoke with Jennifer on the added complication of what marketers should do when they find themselves in limbo as governmental restrictions keep their bank’s merger or acquisition from moving forward. Chris and Jennifer discuss typical M&A timelines, the “stages of grief” for employees, how to future proof your bank marketing career during an M&A and more.
