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.

Leadership books recommendations?
Any senior level writers looking for a job in LA? have a lead on a gig that requires a team. Message me with your book if so.
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!

I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?
Is it really worth it? When I think about having a kid I get sooooo much anxiety. I fear: the extra pressure on a relationship, the cost, the decision to keep working vs quit the job, the possibility of the kid having a lifelong disorder, the physical act of being pregnant, the act of giving birth, not having any time for myself, making an 18+ year commitment, the kid turning out terrible & blaming myself, making all the decisions on how to parent, & more. Does/did anyone else feel the same?

It might be removed anyway so should I just file in Fed Court?
