Hi All! I am fresh into professional working life after college and am looking for any book recommendations you may have! (I typically gravitate towards the business/physiology/self-help genres)

Agree! Terrific book

A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. It falls into spirituality but give it a chance even if that’s not your genre. It’s the best self help book. About recognizing and overcoming the ego. :)

Don’t hesitate to praise others whenever you see the opportunity, and praise lavishly. Sincere praise always works better than criticism. It makes others more receptive to you if you were to later suggest ideas. Be genuinely interested in other people, as that shows (so does when you’re being fake). This builds lasting connections. Assume the best in others and express it, so that they feel like they have a good reputation to live up to. It becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. The hearts of the matter to me, are really empathy and positivity here.

Parents of newborns, how are you approaching having visitors during Covid? I’m pregnant and trying to figure out what are reasonable expectations of my family and friends around visitation/holding the baby (anything from washing hands when they come over to quarantining before visiting and holding the baby). I want to make sure we’re protecting ourselves/the baby and our older family members who are at a higher risk. Our families live nearby so I anticipate they may want to visit frequently

Can anyone tell me what normal SC consulting pay is? I’ve been with Deloitte coming up on 3 years and I’m still at 65K.

I’m beyond fed up of being underpaid but am having a hard time finding a new job.
