My organization has had some executive leadership changes & drastic HR changes in the last 2 years. This was done strategically due to rapid growth and a 30% increase in employees in less than a year. My team & executive leadership has identified significant issues around our employees having lost trust in their supervisors and this is impacting the overall culture. We are focusing on supervisor development & are looking for a book or course to help supervisors gain the trust back. Suggestions?

What exactly is an ACD’s responsibility? I’m a senior cw with a solid book but still have lots to learn, and no leadership experience. Would I be ready for that gig? Is it more creative or leadership?
Recently started a book about politics and the author argues that we (the educated, professional class) are to blame for polarization. Since we are well paid and generally unaffected regardless of who is in power, our positions on issues can be uncompromising. Furthermore, we don’t go out and really engage in campaigns. This is because we’d rather argue amongst ourselves from home. This leads to vacuums where bad actors can take up the mantle of leadership. What do you think about that?

Public interest/legal services attorneys check in!! What’s one thing you love about your job? For me it’s the work life balance.

I’m currently planning a weekend hiking trip and a separate week long trip to Montreal with my bf. I love 35 hour work weeks and generous time off policies!!

I attended interview for TCS on 05/19 this year and they said , feedback will be shared. When I contacted the HR, they said it will take time to share as there are huge people attending interviews.

Ladies I need help! I have been dating my boyfriend for ~3.5 years and we have been living together for most part. He’s nice and perfect, and I know I will never have to worry about him cheating on me/letting me down. But he’s not excited. I just met this guy who’s tall and handsome and rich, and very spontaneous! I have only met him once at a party (he is interested in more) and now I’m questioning my relationship. Should I give him a chance and ruin my relationship? Is stability worth it?

I have sent my resignation mail on 5th July. Apart from a resignation acknowledgement mail which I received within two days, I haven't received any mails stating my last working date. I got to know from one of my colleagues that she received a mail stating her LWD in 2 weeks after she sent her resignation mail, but I haven't received any such mail and it's almost going to be a month. Will I be receiving such a mail or do I have to check with the HR? Please advise.Tata Consultancy

I’m starting to get staffed in more CD-level roles and floundering…I need creative director bootcamp. I don’t know how to ask the right questions, develop a creative process, structure a team, or even trust my own judgement on creative anymore. I’ve learned a bit from other CDs but they tend to be so high-level their skillsets aren’t as applicable since I still get in the weeds as an ACD. How can I learn this stuff without asking my manager for help every time I have to lead a team?

As a creative, how critical are you? I'm very critical but also learned that a lot of CDs aren't as critical and are happy to see the buffet. I still won't present some ideas that I see others presenting.
As a CD, how critical are you? I try to be receptive to half baked ideas or ideas that are done before. But coming up, my ex CDs killed 99% of ideas to the point of meltdown. So I dunno, and also in the context of the types and potentials of briefs, should I be easing up cos, morale?
