Do you feel KPMG is putting people at risk encouraging to go back to the office? It’s not mandatory yet but I can see leadership promoting/expecting and those following would eventually fall in their good books. How hard is it to understand that pandemic is not over by any means?
Looking for leaders in inclusive design or general resources. What agencies, designers, books, or general resources or sites do you look to for reference + brands that you’ve seen walk the walk?
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..

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🙏
Any recommendations for a “good” leadership book that has helped you? Hard to choose when reading reviews on Amazon, I prefer more personalized recommendations (as personal as it can get on fishbowl). Thank you!
Does anyone have book recommendations on how to develop account management and overall leadership skills in the workplace? Want to improve my client relations skills.
Best books for learning tactical business management, strategy, and growth? Looking for more meaty than "Playing to Win" - willing to read good textbooks. Have read plenty of leadership dev books.
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?

What exactly is an ACD’s responsibility? I’m a senior cw with a solid book but still have lots to learn, and no leadership experience. Would I be ready for that gig? Is it more creative or leadership?

If I was a junior on a team during a campaign launch, is that something I can put in my book? I helped during the concepting phase, was responsible for keeping the boards up to date, and wrote a lot of the supporting materials (print, social etc) but obviously I was not on the shoot or the lead on writing the script. As long as I’m clear about my role is that acceptable?
Has anyone read any books by Jocko Willink? Looking to buy extreme ownership or the dichotomy of leadership but I can’t decide
Ah now it did.

My company is now displaying!
I have a stay at home wife with no concept of money. Any ideas on how to reign in the spending? Any credit cards good for this?
Anyone had any negative effects of rolling off early? (by your choice) Or is it best to just stick it out? (5months left)😖
Life is interesting. Had a messed up childhood, <2.0 GPA in high school, dropped out of community college, finagled my way into IT consulting starting at $50k, worked up to $120k, completed my bachelors online last year, just started a Sr. Cons in Strategy role for $160k.
White male privilege is when their only advice is a "quick conversation" with leadership-- as if I hadn't tried that-- & as if all managers listened to all subordinates' ideas equally... 😒🙄
I sobbed for 3 hours today before giving a 30 minute presentation that I was perfectly prepared for and that went well. My diagnosed anxiety is too severe for this industry. I’m a high performer, Ivy League business school grad, with top competitor experience and I do good work, happily. But the intensity or high stakes or scrutiny involved with everything here wreaks havoc on my anxiety levels. The nerves are just so overwhelming. I thought I could manage this but sadly I can’t :/
What's the best way to manage upwards?
The moment you realize the airport bar is like speed dating. Got the number of three guys in one 35min drink #whoneedstinder?
Didn't think this would ever happen in D company. On an internal initiative running for past three months with four teams and nothing really happens. Just talk, big words. Duh!
Soooo at today's morning status meeting our shitty SM was absolutely railing a consultant. Consultant stands up and says, "Fuck you. You're an asshole. I'm done here." And walks out. 😳...👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
When the client comes in hot trying to prove you fucked up & you have proof in writing that they told you to do it. HUZZAHHH🎉🙌🏻💃🏻
Will someone please explain to me-- in simple language-- why it is that so many people seem to find the liberal backlash funny? Colleague told me today that the liberal reaction is "hilarious"
