  • In an increasingly competitive corporate world that so often prioritizes profits over people, one CEO is flipping the script and calling attention to the importance of empathy in the workplace. JeVon McCormick is no stranger to adversity. His father was a drug dealer and his mother, an orphan who became a single mother. After several stints in the juvenile justice system and barely graduating high school, McCormick didn’t give up but instead, focused on developing his career. The now CEO of a multimillion-dollar company puts his people-first methodology into practice with innovative policies that ultimately make business flourish. This includes creating an emergency fund for employees. The Federal Reserve reports that 4 in 10 Americans would struggle to come up with $400 in an emergency, so McCormick has created a system where employees can borrow money if in need. His unconventional leadership style shows how instilling more empathy in the workplace allows for all members of a corporation, not just the corporation itself, to prosper.

Diagnosed with Aspergers at 34, this blog chronicles some of the life events I've gone through, and how I hope to help others on the Autism Spectrum. Posts that are personal opinions will be moving to another Wordpress site by the end of the year; for those looking for help with autism, I hope you will continue to visit and spread the word about the articles that most of the time are links to something I read. Please let me know what challenges you are facing, and I will do my best to address them. Thanks for reading my blog!
