- fairly decent place to work (from someone who worked with the Vancouver and San Jose offices). never met a blue badger (permanent employee) who had awful things to say.
- Ashley Goodall (their SVP, Methods & Intelligence) co-authored a brilliant book on leadership and people management called “Nine Lies About Work” that makes me believe they can be an awesome place to work
- red badgers had low morale since they’re contract workers and can be terminated at any time
I've been in-house a few years and I have the legal skills needed to do my job down reasonably well. One thing I know I need work on is understanding skills and knowledge of working within the corporate world and skills needed for ascending to leadership roles. This ranks high on the list of "things I think that would be helpful to my practice that is fully not covered in law school." Does anyone have any books/podcasts/general resources that they found helpful in their career?
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?
Any great podcasts or books you would recommend? Specifically on leadership/business communication skills/ being a part of the “boys club” or better yet- breaking up the boys club!
I believe improving one’s sales conversion rate is something everyone want to improve but no one wants to admit they would like to work it. Funny how lawyers will spend thousands on seminars to improve trial skills. But this topic is not discussed in our profession. I have read books in sales. But am unable to find any for lawyers. I want convert every lead I can. Does anyone have tips, books, cle’s or studied this topic?
Giving a CLE on practical tips for young lawyers, which focuses on practical tips such as looking for leadership opportunities and client development. We want to give a hand out of resources we’d recommend, like books, podcast, etc. Any recommendations for resources we should include?
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?
Any books to recommend regarding leadership? I really like David chang’s memoir and Can see it being applied in my own life even as a consultant.
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!
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
Ladies, need some advice. I am in Scrum Master role for tech team that is more senior engineers and architects. Feeling very out of the loop as I am not involved in all the discussions and then asked for progress on items from leaders and that am I not aware of..
the team gets Ad hoc requests so new items come up after that stand up and SM/ M will ping folks directly. Feeling like I have become an assistant who updates tickets and books meetings..
Best books on leadership and sales skills?
Is serving 1 week notice mean being in bad books of employer? I am just exhausted and feel burnt out from constant weekend work and 15hrs of work daily for months and no resource to help to share the work load due to budget constraints. Finally had to pull the plug and I am so glad i did.But leadership wants 2 to 3 weeks of notice whereas I am serving 1 week only.
The worst thing is being “voluntold”.
Partners : “Hey, how do you feel about volunteering to lead this? I think you would be great “
Me: “I don’t have the bandwidth to lead that event”
Partner : “Let me clarify, you are leading this event, please book a meeting on my calendar.”
Favorite books about creative 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.

Need new ways to tell my ECD that his writing is hurting the work.
Backstory: I work on a small team and do most of the writing for a few brands. My ECD green-lights copy but often times adds unnecessary fluff, cheesy lines or just nonsensical left-turns in scripts. Without being a dick, what are some ways to effectively be like "do less, please."
Mind the power dynamic from ACD to an ECD.
So here is my doubt .. I have resigned recently from cognizant and I'm serving notice now..
