I was asked by a friend for a few management consultant books (similar to liar's poker in the finance industry) to check out. The only one I can think of is Peter Drucker's Adventures of a Bystander (good but not too much consulting)... any suggestions! 😁
Are there any good movies or novels that show skill development - like follow through? Self-management? Money management? I read a lot of self help books so I know a lot of the theory, and books peppered with examples help, but I feel like most 1 paragraph examples don’t five justice to how hard it may be to change a behavior.
What are the best approaches you have used for stress management? Any recommendations on books and best meditation videos on YouTube or purchased?
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!
Any tips for developing a book of business, particularly in management-side Labor and Employment? For example, any networking groups or organizations that have been helpful (and were they legal-related, general industry, or community groups like Junior League or non-profit Boards)? I’ve talked to some of the male partners in my group, and many of them got lucky through pre-existing relationships (college friends, brothers-in-law, etc.). I need to expand my network but want to maximize returns.

I specialize in nonprofit tax and I’m trying to increase my knowledge in my complex or unusual nonprofits tax issues since I don’t get the exposure that much at work (international activities, private benefit, UBI, etc.). Does anyone have any books or CPEs that they recommend? Or courses that they took that went into detail on this? Most of what I find is more about NFP management skills then the more technical side of it.

Anyone else feel somewhat lost on what interests them long term in their career or if you’re even in the right realm of consulting? Any advice on how I can reflect and figure this out? Context - I applied for any open business analyst position in my city after graduating and ended up in healthcare consulting. I don’t love or hate it. I get the work done and I learn a lot about the healthcare industry but I’m not the most passionate about the work/industry either.

Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂
Anybody have experience with Monta and Farer? I want to get a new watch soon to commemorate a new job/promotion. Looking at the monta atlas blue dial, also the Farer chrono-sport manual and Farer world time.

I'm a benefits director at a large company, and we're adding a fertility benefit starting Jan 1. It looks a lot like Deloitte's program (just noticing Deloitte a lot in this bowl), though ours will be slightly more generous with lifetime maxes. I'd love your feedback about what your employers do especially well or poorly, just to ensure we don't have huge blindspots as we roll it out from scratch. Honest feedback from people who are on this journey is appreciated!!
