Just wanted to share fantastic leadership book my executive coach just released. It’s great! Clear, concise and an easy read. And no I don’t anything for recommending it, it’s genuine!

I’ve hit an absolute brick wall when it comes to finding for a new job. I’ve had almost a dozen interviews that lead nowhere and been ghosted by a ton of recruiters. Would anyone be available to look over my book and give me some advice? 🙏

I work at a preschool that redirects disruptive students by giving them a book to calm down and regroup. Do you think this is a good practice or does it ultimately lead the student to see reading as punishment?
I believe improving one’s sales conversion rate is something everyone want to improve but no one wants to admit they would like to work it. Funny how lawyers will spend thousands on seminars to improve trial skills. But this topic is not discussed in our profession. I have read books in sales. But am unable to find any for lawyers. I want convert every lead I can. Does anyone have tips, books, cle’s or studied this topic?
Latest episode posted! “Generals in the Making” is a gem of a leadership book and should be required reading for any early or mid-level professional. The book is an engrossing examination of how four army generals of World War II, each a major player in their own right, navigated the uncertain and tumultuous pre-war years in their careers. sphttps://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/black-market-leadership/id1523238553?i=1000533915181

- 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
The worst thing is being “voluntold”.
Partners : “Hey, how do you feel about volunteering to lead this? I think you would be great “
Me: “I don’t have the bandwidth to lead that event”
Partner : “Let me clarify, you are leading this event, please book a meeting on my calendar.”
Found a most enlightening work on decolonial history with tons of TIL moments especially about Anti Colonial movements in Egypt, China, Japan and course India in the 19th and 20th centuries. Most histories this period often adopt a Euro-centric lens but this book flips it and tells the stories of these turbulent times from the vantage point of the pioneering Asian leaders like Tagore, Al Afghani, Kang Youwei etc. Lovers of Asian history would surely appreciate this book

I've had my run-ins with people who like to linger in their thoughts and spend time circling in conversation because, whether they knew it or not, they were not sure what they were looking to achieve.
This has burned me in the past (e.g., Hours spent revising material, unnecessary back-and-forth communication with clients).
Hence, when you are assigned something or create something for yourself, make sure you are fully aware of your end goal, so you know what you are working towards and how t

My husband and I have 1 car - around $6K left on a 0% APR loan. I have worked from home the last 2 years while he goes to teach in person, and the lack of freedom is getting to me. We are thinking of getting a 2nd vehicle. Do you have advice/do’s and don’t’s? Vehicles aren’t a great investment, but they are so necessary in our car centric society for mobility.
