Suggestions on resources (books, courses, etc) for improving the following?
Management and mentorship
Working well with people with different working styles
Do you have a recommendation of trainings or books that help to improve verbal communication skills?
Get some actual management experience before billing yourself as a CD freelancer. I’d be willing to pay your rate if you were a CW/AD with a kick ass book. And you’d be more likely to get the gig
Want to improve my verbal and written communication skills. I hear reading more would help but I don’t read as much as I used to. So I’m wondering what books would help with that? Should I just read books that tickle my fancy like suspense and true crime novels? Help! Welcome to all book recommendations!
I'll switch to a startup as the only data engineer and will closely work with all the Head ofs + the CTO.
Any advice/books/... on stakeholder management at that level? Especially when things fail/discussing budgets/new hires etc.
Im moving from core Auto product management role to software development product management role.
Can you please share what should I read to brush up basics on SW PM?
Courses, books, blogs, anything is welcome!
Let's make this group a little active!
What are some good books to read, materials or classes about how to be a more effective PM? And about communication management, recos are gladly accepted.
Hi friends! I’m looking for resources to help me be successful in a “Functional Lead” role.
The role is in FinTech
I’m responsible for strategy, comms and key partnerships for a bank product. It reports through Customer Experience but touches product, Ops. marketing. It’s basically a Project Manager role but more nuanced.
Anyone out there in a role like this? Any books. videos or even best practices to share?
I lead a team of women (ranging from 2-8 years into their careers) and want to advocate for their career growth with management. I’ve made the case for promotions and raises (have been pushing for this for months and keep being told “soon”—but I won’t give up), but I also want to try smaller asks and would love suggestions. Are there any books, one-off classes/trainings, virtual events, memberships, etc. that you’d recommend? Thank you!
What’s your top 3 change management books from the last 5 years? (Trying to refresh and read up again!)
Hi all, I’m looking for ways to develop myself professionally. I would love recommendations or tips on how you continue education in your field to stay relevant and continue to learn about different marketing strategies.
Any tips on really good conferences, programs, classes, books, would be so so appreciated.
I’m currently a senior manager for local marketing activations on a planned path to become a director. Thank you!
I am studying for MBA and need 3 books. They are very expensive to buy, so I am wondering if any of you have access to a soft copy that you can share.
> Management Research: Applying the Principles by Susan Rose, Nigel Spinks
> Research Methods for Business and Management by Kevin O'Gorman, Robert MacIntosh
> Theory and Practice of Leadership by Roger Gill
I am in a client service account associate role right now helping AMs/AEs/Producers manage their books of business. A recruiter reached out to me with a Client Manager position. I have imposter syndrome because i have only been in insurance for 4 years. The first year being an intern/admin, so technically 3 years. (continued in comments...)
Is there a market for lawyers to add expertise In crisis management or reputation management? My goal is to counsel clients on how to respond to media inquiries without saying or posting something detrimental to a potential lawsuit while still maintaining communication with their client base. If so, how to break into that industry? Courses? Books? Certifications?
- fairly decent place to work (from someone who worked with the Vancouver and San Jose offices). never met a blue badger (permanent employee) who had awful things to say.
- Ashley Goodall (their SVP, Methods & Intelligence) co-authored a brilliant book on leadership and people management called “Nine Lies About Work” that makes me believe they can be an awesome place to work
- red badgers had low morale since they’re contract workers and can be terminated at any time
I'm an introverted person, like to keep to myself, focus on work, spend the rest of my time on family, gym etc. I've been told that I need to work on my communication and client relationship building skills. any books I can read? I don't follow pop. culture anymore, no longer actively follow team sports (but sporty myself) as I consider it bread and circus for the masses and don't rly enjoy work drinks... Am I doomed? Personally I am happy and love the work but fear for my career progression.
Hey 🐠, what are your recommendations of books, articles, or practice tips to improve communication, both verbal and written? Want to be stronger at running meetings, pitching ideas, writing (cont’d)
What are some good personal finance books/podcasts? Or even general business books. Asking for someone with a STEM background and very limited business exposure (besides being a restaurant manager and taking an intro to Econ and accounting in college).
Looking for recommendations to generally upskill my Strategy work (or learn from scratch) — be it courses, classes, books, podcasts, people to follow.
For context, I’m a freelance Social Media Manager/Strategist and I came into Ad world via Startups. Throwing myself into learning on the job with more Strategy gigs - but I still don’t feel like I quite know the lingo or best practices or theories.
Question for for all those in Management Consulting.
How do I become better at strategic thinking ? What else can I be doing ?
Here's what I have been doing
1. Reading books - the usual ones that come up on Google search
2. Reading past annual reports/investor reports to see how strategy played out
Why did my fantasy roster go from everyone ok to 5 Questionables in a day? What is going on?!?

Does ZS allow WFH full time?
I sat down at my desk this morning, plugged in my laptop, then reached over my shoulder to buckle myself in 😅😂
Made a counteroffer a week ago and it’s been crickets ever since. Unsure whether it’s being run up the chain or whether I’m being ghosted. Companies and recruiters, why are you like this? 🚩
Are coding bootcamps worth it anymore?
Any positions in DE&I for a VP and up?
I work for a small (yet quickly scaling) tech startup that is fully remote regardless of Covid. Outside of healthcare and vacation, what benefits do others in similar companies have? Or even better, what do you expect? We are going to be hiring a lot of people while watching our dollars (limited investment dollars available) but need to make sure we are competitive. Do you have things like matching 401ks, office allowance, phone/internet stipend, etc.
Do you tend to forget what's being said on meetings? I do and so I'm always being forced to record every meeting I attend. Sometimes I try to take notes but it's extremely hard to listen to what's being said if i do that. Is this something that only I'm going through or is this common?
I quit my previous job approximately 5-6 months ago due to toxic culture and being pressured to commit fraud. I fear hiring managers see that I’ve been out of work for this time and may assume I was fired or laid off. Additionally I’ve had a couple interviews where company “X” interviewers have commented on this and in an effort to not bad mouth my previous employer I’m stuck with a generic answer like I want to take my career to the next level with Company “X.” I’m stuck. Thoughts/strategies?
Interviewing for a big tech marketing position. Any recommendations on books to read/ resources to prepare?
its been 1.5 years since my ex and i broke up and im still in love with him. Will I ever be able to love anyone as much again? We were together for 6 years 🥺
Anyone else get an email saying they were getting an Ambassador over the next week, even though they didn't qualify this year or last? App has said Ambassador since switch, but figured it was a glitch
Hi ladies I am currently working for a tech startup as an associate consultant and want to gain more experience by working at a larger tech or consulting firm. I am new to applying in this field and am looking for a mentor to talk about career opportunities in this industry and to give me some resume/interview advice? Any advice would be great!
Do you typically work on holidays? This year I had to work a bit on Thanksgiving because we had an event. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be though.
I see a lot of posts from people who are being put forward for interviews and comment on this forum about having concerns about whether what they are looking for will be achievable. My view is that salary should be discussed upfront and before 1st interview and expectations set so that the client and the candidate understand in advance each others expectations and that both can be met. I’m interested if their are thoughts on why you wouldn’t nail this down in advance.It guarantees no wasted time

Really down this morning. I've lost (not dead, just ghosted me) 4 friends this year and may lose another one. I don't have too many friends so losing anyone is tough but 4 people, now almost 5? Would love some encouragement and positive thoughts if possible.
Broke up with my fiance the week before Covid hit (not knowing all this would happen). Now I wonder what life would have been like if we hadn't broken up then. Maybe we could have worked things out? I will never know.
Engineers are hawt. 🥵
Sigh. Does anyone actually like their boss these days? Does it matter? Do you require that your boss invest in you?
What’s your favorite porn category?
I keep sabotaging my relationships. I am already trying to find a therapist, as I think I also have undiagnosed ADHD (I am 35). I got into a huge fight with my bf over the weekend for basically nothing. We’ve dated for about a year, he’s very serious about me but I am very close to losing him. It seems I am just picking fights and can’t let go. It’s like I am constantly testing how much of this he can take. I don’t wanna be a drama queen but I guess I am. Any advice on how to get out of this?
Rant: Help me to understand why some people here on FB will say they will refer you, say everything looks great, but don’t want to answer questions about their experience with the company? Or they sit on your resume and job IDs like the roles you’re wanting are going to be around forever? Don’t get mad as I find someone else to submit. Don’t say “DM me!” and then don’t follow through! I could just apply myself, lol
Just got into wharton business school, whatre peoples perception of the school? I feel like my view of the school is heavily skewed because of my research / application process but want peoples honest thoughts who work in corporate America. I grew up homeless so an opportunity like this is unbelievable but not making money for a couple years scares me - so this is a genuine question!
One time I was trying to google a picture of a barrette so I knew what to grab for my wife from the store. Problem was I couldn’t remember what it was called. So, I looked up “bobbit” because that sounded right. First picture had me go NOPE.
Squealer by AC/DC is one of my favorite songs
