No advice? Is it clichéd books like how to win friends and power? Are they really worth reading?

You CAN be that leader that people want to work with. 1st, self assessment is required. Be honest: As a leader,have you engaged in/accepted Attribution Bias with a dash of gender &/or race bias? (See the pic) This is something we all need to be aware of as we lead our teams, provide performance feedback, & model the behaviors we'd like to see more of on our teams. Be on the lookout for Attribution Bias in yourself & on your team. It's a hindrance to creating a high-performing, inclusive culture.

I am at a small firm with great WLB and no billable hour requirements. We only write down time that is truly billable to the client, and I bill about 1500 hours. I am considering going to a larger firm, and all of them (obviously) have requirements that are more than 1500. I’m sure it varies by firm, but are there categories of time that would not necessary be billable to the client but may count to your requirements? For example, pro bono, professional development, CLEs, etc? Wishful thinking?
