Jamie Dimon is one of Wall Street’s most effective and intelligent leaders who has transformed J.P. Morgan Chase into one of the largest and most well-respected banks in the world. To understand why this is, it’s important to analyze Dimon’s leadership style and how this has impacted the performance of J.P. Morgan. This paper investigates the performance of J.P.
