My client in a nutshell.
Looking for recommendations on a good book/resource on how to manage people, especially when you’re managing teams to achieve tight deadlines and also overall leadership for those teams. Currently on a project with tight regulatory deadlines and feel like I’m struggling to push people without pissing them off. Great learning curve for me and a good read seems timely. TIA!
For those of you who have previously bought a practice, what are some key factors you want to look into when analyzing and conducting due diligence? Specifically for client retention.

In-house newbie here. I’ve been put in charge of drafting up a corporate policy that creates a process for employees to object to working with a client for ethical reasons. We are a vendor in the SaaS space. What legal claims should be included here? Religious, political.... anyone in HR know of a good resource to point me to specifically for this topic?
Moms, I need advice. I’m one month in at D (previous consultant, spent last 5 years in industry as a leader of leaders) and came in at Mgr - and I *hate* it. I’m 13 weeks with our first and mat leave was a huge factor in coming to D, so feeling trapped. I spend more time dealing w/ asshole client SM (not my project SM) than doing work. My coach is great, but her advice was basically, “D is full of assholes 🤷🏻♀️, get used to it.” Is it too soon to leave? Especially pregnant? What to tell recruiters?
Ideas for client gifts this year? Typically has been a nice bottle of wine, but only to the clients I had previously shared drinks with so I knew they were wine drinkers.
I’ve been seeing this a lot more recently and just had to make a thread about it. I refuse to believe that anyone on here has actually been asked to work a 100hr week. People come onto this thread with legitimate questions and concerns and I just see people trying to scare them out of public which inevitably makes it worse for everyone else who sticks around. Even an 80 hour week is debatable and that is the absolute top. Stop trying to be an attention getter. We work, but not 24/7.

Alright - for the ladies who found other jobs while on mat leave: when did you give notice - on your first day back? And was that essentially your last day at the firm, or did you stick around for a few days to wrap things up? (The new gig doesn’t start for a few months, so that I can be childcare.) I suspect my firm won’t want to pay me for two weeks to just stick around without a project, correct? Thanks in advance for any anecdotes or helpful tips.
