Are there any books or other resources that mid levels/seniors/counsel/partners on here have found helpful for the project management / managing junior attorney aspects of your job? I am not finding a lot of stuff written for lawyers specifically , but there is a lot directed at “managers” in business generally that I imagine could be applicable.
CDs + Hiring Managers: What all are you looking for in a junior creative’s book? What do they need to get a foot in the door?
I recently left a marketing agency and went to work with a startup as hire #2, in charge of building the entire digital marketing strategy and client management side. But now I have to think in terms of scale and process, not just marketing, which is a new paradigm for me. What are you best learning resources (book, webinars, podcasts, etc.) to start thinking in terms of scale and process?
I get the feeling that there are some advisory managers that blatantly book every staff member in their office for “just one hour” on “very quick tasks” than blatantly and intentionally immediately dump 20-30 hours of work onto them, so they can get ahead in the musical chairs of finding staff. All to the adverse effect of the practice, staff, and other teams. There’s some people that consistently do this weekly. Kind of unethical.
Partners - I’m aiming for manager this year and I’m looking for books/courses that will help me understand and work on the fundamentals of being an effective leader. What are some resources that helped you?
I just had my 90 day review and it’s wasn’t great but it wasn’t terrible. I got a meeting invite in my books with my direct manager and director called HOLD - placeholder time for Friday around 3:00. Does this mean I’m getting let go?
What do you as a producer or project manager use to market yourself when looking for a new job? Creatives have their books/portfolios that they keep up to date, but what do you personally use? A personal website? A strong resume/LinkedIn presence? Word of mouth/networking? Would love to hear different perspectives!
I’m a fan of UBJ over UBI. I think it teaches the right motivations. Chicago does some of this with Summer traffic management/event jobs given to “at risk” teens. It keeps them busy and they get decent money. The jobs aren’t all 100% necessary, but I’m assuming someone has done the math that having people come to you for cheap jobs is more worthwhile than sending police to them. https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/books/story/2020-06-24/forget-ubi-says-an-economist-its-time-for-universal-basic-jobs

Hello All. Does anyone know of any good/decent resources regarding Account Management best practices? Could be blogs/medium/videos/books? Any example AM handbooks? Looking to develop a set for an agency for the team and want to review other methods and processes. Thank you!
What book have you read that was helpful for your career and/or that you would recommend? Could be a technical book, management, etc. For me, it’s a book I read a few years ago: The Phoenix Project. I never thought I would read and like a novel about DevOps but I recommend it to all my managers.
ML vs MS? I already have a book. Curious how management is? And what the culture is like? I hate ML. Morgan Stanley seems more polished from the interview process. Thoughts on future? Grid changes?
I have mostly worked in Senior Individual contributor roles (Industry) so far in career and working in project manager, PMO/Consultant role for the first time. What are some good books, tutorials, youtube channels that can be helpful? I often tend to slide towards individual contributor roles but want to learn project, team management now.
