Can anyone recommend a good business leadership or marketing or startup book to get as a gift for someone?
Our senior creative leadership keep talking about winning Cannes Lions and D&AD pencils but none of them have actually won any since 2007 (that’s 14 years 😭 ) and between all three of them they’ve never won more than a couple of silvers, a couple of bronzes and a couple of in-books (that’s with a combined experience of over 60 years 😭). They have no clue 🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭. Tell me something about your agency so that I can feel better about the hell-hole I find myself in🙏
Best books on business/ negotiation/ leadership you have ever read (and use practically)!?
I’m one of very few creative women in my shop...there are none in creative leadership. Would love a female mentor who I could show my book to, ask questions, and get general advice from. 🤞
@PwC is there a WBS code to book time for IT issues? I bet the numbers are scary to leadership and could easily justify getting everyone a better machine e.g. MacBooks than those inferior Dells/HP
Has anyone read either Dave Burgess's "Teach Like a Pirate" or "Lead Like a Pirate" books? What's your takeaway from them?

Anyone have book/podcast recommendations on creative leadership? Or on leadership/managing in general?
This is consistent with the research findings in my book "Lead From the Future". The 5-10 year horizon brings as much to see opportunities as much as threats and is the north star; need even now
Looking for an awesome senior copywriter or ACD who would be interested in making the jump to CD at a good agency in NYC. It will be my first time as a CD so looking for someone with similar experience but with a desire to manage people and lead a team. DM me/your book if this sounds like you 😊
Any mid-level copywriters looking for work? We had another writer leave and are looking to fill the position. It's a small shop with incredible creative leadership and fun food accounts. Trust me, you’ll get a lot of opportunities and have a blast. PM a link to your book and I'll tell you more.
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

Hi Ladies! I’m transitioning to a manager of a team I’ve been leading. There’s been a lot of turnover with the team and I feel like I’m having a hard time getting the team to see me more as an authoritative figure. For example, when I ask for volunteers on a simple task, no one replies. Should I just resort to assigning rather than asking? Also are there leadership books you suggest that I could read up on? Thank you!
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?

Could you claim tuition paid to a church for daycare when they were closed due to COVID as a donation? Normally tuition isn’t tax deductible but during these periods of time no reciprocating benefits were received. I plan to talk to a CPA but thought I’d check here?
Can anyone share tips for asking for an out-of-cycle raise? I’m a high performer going up for manager this year, and I know the promotion pay bump will be small. Any suggestions?

Applied to a new school. It is in a middle school and I have no secondary experience, only elementary. Any tips for my demo such as in behavior management/lesson planning? Greatly appreciated!
This past busy season was my second. I anticipate promotion to senior. Do I stick it out one more year or jump ship now? How much difference does it make for industry offers?
Does anyone have the 2020 SHRM books for sale or to borrow? My job won’t contribute towards my certification. I’ve already paid for my test. I have the books from 2015 but I’d like to study from the 2020. I tried finding them online to purchase but sellers of affordable books aren’t responding.

Advice needed. I’m supposed to be up for senior this year. I was informed by my counselor that promotion is still on the table however since my technical knowledge isn’t where it should be in order to be promoted I need to show significant improvement before year end in order to be promoted. Should I start looking for another job?
