Do you have any suggestions on the master classes? Or would a simple google search work?

Would love to know myself!

Our annual reviews are approaching & one of my direct reports has been with us for almost six years w/ little growth. My reco was to let him go & find a stronger, hungrier & more motivated designer at the same level. However, my boss instead wants us to promote him in hopes that will spark some motivation. I am not behind this decision & have voiced my multitude of concerns in promoting an employee who doesn't deserve it. HR is behind the decision! Thoughts on promoting an undeserving report?

How’d you prepare yourself to leave a job you dislike but the team is everything you could ask for? I feel extremely guilty...
Just joined this team for less than half a yr from a toxic (fintech consulting) team. I didn’t expect much but my current team/boss/boss’ bosses are all supportive and believe my words about my negative experience in the previous team. But I really don’t like the job—and it is my fault: I kept accepting jobs w/ good salary but are not what I’m passionate about 🙁TIA

Ya’ll. I am consistently mansplained to by the client who has daughters. I just want to say, “Is this how you treat your daughters when they talk to you?”.

I’ve been submitting applications because my company has been doing layoffs and pay cuts. I was informed yesterday that they will be doing additional pay cuts starting next week. First my bonus was cut by 60% and now they have mentioned they are going to cancel it altogether. When interviewing for new positions how should I explain why I’m looking for a new job even though I still (at least currently) have a job, just major pay cuts?


Good questions to ask in one up meetings (or with your boss’s boss)?


I’m job hunting, and I’m realizing that I am in a weird gray area of my career. I have 12 yrs management experience with e-com companies, and 5 years as a director.

It seems the only callbacks I’m getting are for management roles, and they are quick to admit that they don’t think they can afford me. But, the director roles want me to have more experience as a director.

Take a lower title/slight pay cut with the opportunity to advance quickly? Or hold out for a director title and salary?


Anyone made the switch from a traditional path to being a professional career coach? While I do enjoy the tax compliance part of my work, I think my real strength and passion is in the people: mentoring, motivating, helping people to think about and set a plan to achieve their goals. Does career coaching seem like a good fit? Any advice on where to start?


If anyone is looking for a coach, if you feel stuck where you are, running on autopilot, in a funk and not sure what to do to shift, and if you want to be happy in your now while creating the life you desire, reach out to me! I have capacity to support 3 more women and love the changes I've seen in my clients! DM if your interested in a complimentary call to see if it's something that would support you!

How to handle being mansplained by an Experienced Hire with less than 5 months at your Firm?


Went to a happy hour yesterday, and while I remember almost everything, I do not probably remember 5% of convos. I’m not someone who acts stupid/immature but have been dealing with some stuff personally. Really kicking myself for my behavior and feeling stressed. If I said anything shitty, would people ping me to tell? Work went on as normal today, but still feeling uneasy..


What are your thoughts on taking an offer that would put you in a new location, making more money and being in a healthier work environment, but with a title change? (assistant manager to lead supervisor)

Would the title change look like a step back in my career? Thanks.


Is there anyone around here with Data Analytics OR audit background OR both that would be great. I am looking for some ideas in these areas as in what Tools are usually used & how are the team structures etc. TIA


I’ve been in HR for 17 years. Last week was the hardest of my career and it did not have to be.


I've heard you shouldn't quit because of another employee. Two times in my career managers have tried to get me fired to cover up their own incompetence or mistakes. I played it well and they ended up being fired. They were very abusive to staff.

Now I'm dealing with a frankly insane coworker and I really don't feel like waiting it out or playing some game. It's exhausting.


I thought I needed a vacation bad. Then I went on one and I still can’t get my brain to get work done. My long to do list is just getting longer and more overdue but can’t bring myself to make significant progress.

Am I just burnt out? What do I do about it?


Hey ladies - have you ever had a conversation with a bride on the cost of a bridemaid dress? The one the bride would like me to wear is $310. This would be the most expensive dress I have ever purchased and it’s definitely not a dress I would ever re-wear. I am finding it very difficult to justify spending so much on a dress I will only wear for 5 hours. Any advice on how to handle?
