I need to learn a new way to speak about process improvement and efficiencies. I’ve learned I have a knack for this but it seems like such common sense to me that I struggle articulating this to people who just don’t get it. I have no certifications and have no interest in getting one… Also, can you actually teach process improvement to people who don’t get it or is this just a DNA thing. Help? :)

Hi Everyone, I am looking for an opportunity in HR in Delhi, India. I have 7 years of experience in HR Operations and Recruitment. Can anyone help me on this.
I worked/billed a ton last week and Monday and Tuesday this week, and then today I didn’t have any meetings or anything and just hit a brick wall - I slept until 10am and just dealt with accumulating non-billable stuff for almost all of the day. Now I feel terrible about it. How do you keep going? I feel awful about today and have such dread about all that I have to do tomorrow 😭 I’m in a new practice area and am super grateful for the work, but the learning curve is hard and I’m struggling!

Been at my firm for 3 years. Considered a “star” associate, doing things on time, etc. My boss randomly asks me to send him a list my assignments and the exact date I plan on “delivering” drafts to him. Thought this was strange but sent it with a caveat that the deadlines I put in are estimates and may change based on circumstances outside my control. He doesn’t respond to my email but forwards it to his assistant to have her calendar all my deadlines immediately. Anyone else think this is weird
Finding it hard to continue as an attorney after 10 years as a very happy litigator doing insurance defense work including trials. Courts have been closed for over a year (I practice in NYC) and it does not look like I’ll ever have the lifestyle I once had and loved, going to court and depositions every day. Billable hours seem impossible without court and life has just gotten so gravely boring. Anyone else feeling lost? I’ve spent the entire last year trying to figure out where to go from here

Hi, I am bringing together a team through a reorg any suggestions on how to bring a new team together remotely?
I just had an employee tell me they are on the verge of quitting due to burnout- actually going to quit but was told to talk to HR for options (we don't have any in place). The manager wants to keep them as they are one of our best employees. Any recommendations on how to help alleviate burnout when the cause is from customers rather than the company? Is it worth it to let the employee leave and spend months looking for a replacement causing more stress/burnout with others?

Anyone have slow months where you burn through a lot of your allotted pro bono/professional development hours to keep hitting minimum daily hours? The past few weeks have been like this for me. Should I be concerned (I.e., will this reflect poorly on me, come review time? Will I have dug myself too much of a hole if I keep burning my non-billable hours?) I’ve been asking partners if I can assist in any projects so I can fill my plate, but I’ve only gotten small (4-6 hour) tasks handed my way.
