Latest episode posted! “Generals in the Making” is a gem of a leadership book and should be required reading for any early or mid-level professional. The book is an engrossing examination of how four army generals of World War II, each a major player in their own right, navigated the uncertain and tumultuous pre-war years in their careers. sphttps://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/black-market-leadership/id1523238553?i=1000533915181
I work at a preschool that redirects disruptive students by giving them a book to calm down and regroup. Do you think this is a good practice or does it ultimately lead the student to see reading as punishment?

Best books on creative leadership?
Want to learn how to start valuing my more and focusing on high ROI activities as a young professional. Any Partners/MDs/Senior Leaders have tips for a rookie or books they’d recommend?
Looking for recommendations on a good book/resource on how to manage people, especially when you’re managing teams to achieve tight deadlines and also overall leadership for those teams. Currently on a project with tight regulatory deadlines and feel like I’m struggling to push people without pissing them off. Great learning curve for me and a good read seems timely. TIA!
I have a strong junior book and won a Gold Pencil in the Young Ones recently, but can't seem to find a single job lead anywhere. Anybody know who in LA I should reach out to?
Does anyone have any books recommendations on personal or career development? Anything that helped shaped you for a leadership position down the line? Thanks!
There's a ton of self help and leadership books out there to help people in their careers. If there was one that was written front the lense of a public accounting, would you read it?
Favorite books about creative leadership?
Which books would you recommend to a product counel for tech startup about strategy, management, and leadership?
Interviewed with EJ, RJ, and Stifel as a new advisor. which to pick? EJ offering way more base up front with small goodknight to start. RJ’s fancy AMP training program is just slap a yellow pages down and start dialing with little to no practice building training. Stifel seems similar to RJ, with less hidden customer fees, more flexibility on customizing your fee schedule per customer, and there is a possibility of the lead FA in the office retiring out soon with his 120m book.
If anyone's interested, Collective (fintech startup) has remote openings for a lead / mid-weight product designers, a graphic designer.
I personally do not work there, but would be happy to pass any books along!
Looking for an art partner to come in at the ACD or what my agency calls “group art supervisor” level. Fair warning: it’s pharma, but business is really healthy and leadership usually fights really hard for creative that doesn’t involve couples strolling down the shoreline hand-in-hand :) Hit me with your book if interested

Maybe a controversial question but, I'm feeling like I need a pick me up in this department. What's a good site or place to just look at nice, decent, normal men's pics or videos that's not a dating site, pron or model site. I'm depressed and feel like I may be too old or fat for a new relationship, and need some realistic but nice 'eye-inspo' to get me through and excited for the future. Weird, I know.. I'm clearly dealing with some stuff.
Going to 3% this year. Those who’ve been, how do you recommend getting the most out of it - for both myself & my company, who’s sending very few? Never been & know very little in terms of specifics.
I looked down at my boobs yesterday and they were wrinkly and old and I’m only in my 30’s. It took my aging cleavage for me to realize that this is what the stress of advertising does to you...it sucks the life out of you, it ages you. And it robs you of so much more than an a nice pair of tits. It steals you away from your loved ones during the times that matter, your health, and your self-compassion. And this is when I realized I have to quit this Industry.

In a mtg, a male colleague asked me, “Do you know what Blockbuster is!? Or was that before your time?!” I’m in my mid-thirties. I find this kind of question so condescending....

Does having a masters in graphic design, fine arts or advertising benefit you and help you move along in your career? Or does knowing the right people and type of company help you move along? I would love some advice about this since I’m considering grad school
After busting my behind for years, I am finally in a position to retire and live modestly. Problem is, I dont know what I would do with myself. I get depressed if I dont have responsibility and tasks and my ego is tied to being sucessful at my job. I rack my brain asking 'what do you want to do' and come up with no answers. My partner would still work. I know, 1st world problems, but anyone else at this point in their life?
Need advice please! Couple of inconsistencies:
I just started my new job today. When I interviewed, I was told my hiring manager was one person, today it turns out it's another person that I did not interview with.
I was told prehire that id be leading a team of 4-6 direct reports. I asked my boss today who in the dept of 30+ people are reporting into me. She says "no one for now" and she can't give me a timeline of when anyone would.
What should I do? Should I quit?
Does anyone else put on sweatpants and a sweatshirt when going to therapy? Because if you don’t, I highly recommend it.
