Anyone planning on trying Scottie Pippen’s new bourbon? I don’t think it’s available yet where I live. I figure for the 17 years he entertained me I could throw $60 at a bottle.
Any clinical reporting folks on here? What type of company are you at and how are you liking it? I provide reporting services in an academic hospital medicine division at a state institution. Reports are mostly performance based and quality improvement (ex. discharge by 10am, length of stay, 30 day readmission, census on Medicine teams at the hospital, etc.) I would love to hear who you support!
I've been in an interim position for about 6 months now. My employer just offered me the permanent role. For compensation, should it match the amount that they gave me while I was in the interim role (temporary increase) or should it actually be a little higher?
So, like a lot of people, currently on the market right now looking for a gig as my role was eliminated. However, state of the world and industry are both so shaky that sending out resumes seems rather pointless while majority of agencies appear rather frozen, at least out West. Considering slowing search down for a month or so to maintain sanity. Anyone feel the same?
What’s an appropriate amount to spend pp on wedding gift given the following: my cousin had a small ceremony last year (covid - immediate fam only so mine wasn’t there) & her delayed big ceremony is in a few months. My fam of 4 gave $1k in lieu of original wedding & $400 registry gift for bridal party (didn’t attend bc covid). We’ll travel for the wedding (nice venue in a major metro suburb), & couple is paying for happy hour night before wedding too. Not sure if past gifts factor in? TY!
Anyone have experience with kitten getting dewormed? Took ours to the vet for it, but she is still lethargic and not eating much :( it’s been over 24 hours and we took her again for IV to rehydrate her bc of diarrhea and puking. Wondering how long it’ll take before she bounces back?? Vet just keeps telling us to keep an eye out on her. But she’s already lost so much weight.

For those of you that live in Manhattan and have sent/plan to send kids to private school, what are the reasons for choosing private over public school (and ones that require entrance exam)? My thinking is that once my children get accepted to a good private school at the kindergarten level, they don’t have to do any standardized test kind of prep until high school, which can hopefully make their life easier. However, private school is so expensive.

We’re in the process of redesigning our leadership and executive compensation structure. Both the CEO and CFO have their thoughts based on the seat. I'm exploring bottom-line and outcome-based bonus structures currently. Any feedback, views, questions, or advice?

Hi all, I’m just 3-4 years into my career and I aim to become a CEO of a mid-sized company. In order to navigate there sooner I am looking for advice on what sort of roles or opportunities to pursue, any distance learning MBA options that someone might recommend and any back door entry/secret sauce that you wish you had known earlier. Sincerely looking forward to your guidance🙏🏻
I am a Senior Project Manager for a custom estate builder. We build homes over $50mm in construction costs for the ultra wealthy. I have been with this firm for 15 years and make $350K annual. There is only one partner and the sole proprietor who is essentially retired. They split ~$5MM in profits per year. I have reached the limit on title / career progression in my company - nowhere upwards to go. I highly doubt they will ever partner anyone else into the business. Do I leave?
Working my way up the corporate ladder. I have so many thoughts on leadership and want to initiate changes in the departments I work with. But at this level it's so difficult. Ppl are so resistant to change.
My key learning thus far in my career: Noone gives a shit about your ideas unless you're a head honcho. Real change is brought about from a position of authority.
Got an opportunity for a Director role that will oversee a new and major changes across the org but won't have people under me. Should I be worried?
What’s the best way of encouraging young team members to actually disconnect during their time away? I have some individuals that will not take actual vacations, they say, “I’ll have my laptop and phone”. My response is “please leave your laptop at home and turn off teams and outlook phone notifications. If there is an emergency and we have a question only you can answer, we can call or text. we’ve got this.”
And then they teams checking in 2 days later 🤦🏼♀️

I’ve been a mid-level manager (Sr Operations Manager) for the last three years. Been in my industry for 10 years. I feel I have plateaued in my career path. I’m trying to promote to a Director of Operations role in house and looking at outside opportunities as well. I feel like it’s taken longer to obtain this position than my previous roles. Any advice from Sr/Exec Management to be more self aware and fill in the holes to finally hit the finish line?

I’m currently considering an offer and am finding that all online compensation benchmarking is falling flat in terms of understanding how I should be looking at comp for this role.

Does anyone have recommendations on an approach to get frequent feedback on employee sentiment across your teams?
I lead a global team of ~70 and growing. Most of the team is deployed to major company initiatives and pressure is high. We do big annual employee surveys, but I'm looking for good ways to get more regular feedback at scale.
What things have direct reports done that have impressed you? I have one - one of my managers just sent me an extremely perfect mid year review with actions milestone outcomes - bottle necks. So simple and clear to measure success for end of Q4. Thank you 🙏 hiring god who found this employee.
