What training or guidance are you giving managers at your firms about managing hybrid teams? There is a lot out there on remote teams, but a lot of us are going back three days a week which means people at home and people in the room. Any tips to pass on?

You’re constantly showing up for everyone else, but who’s showing up for you? I started an initiative to coach HR/people leaders because I know what it’s like to be doing all the things for everyone else with little support or focus on your own well-being, growth and development. It’s a lonely game! I’d be delighted to create the space to make you a priority. Would love to offer a free session, or simply connect: https://www.chrisrollins.me/peopleleaders.

I’ve been thinking of taking some time off to have an extra long weekend, but I find I’m always working on the weekend. Can you take a “day off” on the weekend to protect it?

Wondering what the good in-house gigs are in town. Kind of sick of agency culture. Don't really care about awards or award-winning work or anything. Just want to do a good job and be done at a decent hour every day. And be paid well to do it lol (this is likely the trick).
Why did Deloitte’s federal practice have layoffs? Given that the clients are large government entities. I can understand it happening in commercial but federal makes no sense
Is Uber’s Strategy & Operations Manager role worth it? Would be a 25k base reduction (similar bonus). Not passionate about Uber and pretty satisfied with consulting (7 out of 10) at the moment.
I currently max out 401k and ROTH contributions, only debt is a car loan (zero interest) and a mortgage (2.375% APR), have $45k set aside (6 months of expenses) and another $50k in savings. What would you recommend doing with the $50k and any other disposable income? Note: We’re a one income household with two kids, so not much of an appetite for high risk investments.
Looking for some inputs on managing finances at home. How much do you put in savings for the kid and for future? How much do you keep for personal use?
