Really broad question but for business the gold standard for 100 years has been “how to win friends and influence people” -dont mind the name just lookup the reviews and critics

I'm reading a fantastic book right now: You're Lying by Lena Sisco. It does a really great job of covering topics such as body language, rapport building, and spotting lies (as you probably guessed from the title).

Improv. Take lessons at your local theater.

Accenture folks, do you get a bonus with mid year promotion?

I recently found out than my colleague makes $15k more than me. He graduated law school the year before me but started at the firm only a month ahead of me with no prior experience in our specific field. I also found out that my female colleague, who has been at our firm for a year longer (but has worked in our field for about 5 years before she started at the firm) also makes less than he does, but also significantly more than me. I think I deserve a serious raise- how would you handle this?

Is it my firm, or does PA in general have a bunch of talkers? I was told that once I'd start in charging I would receive a raise for supervising staff. I was told that once I passed all four sections of the CPA i would receive a bonus. I was told that the firm would cover some of my expenses related to preparing for the CPA. I was told that once I trained my replacement I would see a promotion. - Everything coming from the partner level. Here I stand now, no better off than I was two years ago.
