Ladies, any suggestions or self help books that helped you when your besties were all getting engaged or married and you were single? I want to be genuinely happy but I get sad and jealous
This is consistent with the research findings in my book "Lead From the Future". The 5-10 year horizon brings as much to see opportunities as much as threats and is the north star; need even now
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! (The e-reader version is only $0.99) Spark Brilliance: How the Science of Positive Psychology Will Ignite, Engage, and Transform Your Team https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09SNLCW7Q/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_F3M21RCQ9KTGGQDMRVA7
Best way to develop your leadership skills for the healthcare field? Or books/resources you would recommend?
Just curious how many interviews did you go on before landing a job? Iv already had 5 different interviews where I make it to the final rounds and they just say they are going a different direction with someone with more experience. I have one that I’m waiting back to hear from and have a second round with Amazon. If I don’t get these I’m debating on if I should read/study leadership books to try and change my approach when answering these questions.
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?
What's with the saturation of self help/ productivity books on social media (reddit, Instagram etc.) ? Not saying I don't mind reading them, but I see this quite a bit. Know a few people who consciously only read non fiction instead. Just thinking aloud over here. Would like to hear what you guys think ?
Did anyone but multiple self help books from well being subsidy? I'm thinking about buying 20-30 of them but wondering whether they will reject it...
I’m depressed. Nothing unique about my depression - I’m in big law, my career defines me, when I’m not working I can’t find the will to get off the couch, I’m sad or I’m numb…I know I’m the only one that can make a change to my life…I’m on antidepressants. Just extremely unmotivated and paralyzed. Self-help books are not for me, but I am curious - has anyone tried a guided depression/anxiety journal? Any recommendations if so? Or, if you have experienced the same, what steps did you take?
Best books on creative leadership?
Looking for an art partner to come in at the ACD or what my agency calls “group art supervisor” level. Fair warning: it’s pharma, but business is really healthy and leadership usually fights really hard for creative that doesn’t involve couples strolling down the shoreline hand-in-hand :) Hit me with your book if interested
Our senior creative leadership keep talking about winning Cannes Lions and D&AD pencils but none of them have actually won any since 2007 (that’s 14 years 😭 ) and between all three of them they’ve never won more than a couple of silvers, a couple of bronzes and a couple of in-books (that’s with a combined experience of over 60 years 😭). They have no clue 🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭. Tell me something about your agency so that I can feel better about the hell-hole I find myself in🙏
Is there a book out there on leadership within professional services/consulting space? I have found a lot of good material on consulting in general (the trusted advisor, etc) but nothing...
Any suggestions for self help books on anxiety? Been dealing with anxiety for quite some time now and have been seeing a therapist but also just want to see what other resources are out there.
Best books on leadership and sales skills?
Feels like books in that niche *business self-help* genre are aimed at insecure overachievers like us. There are 500 and no one got time for that shit. What is a key takeaway from 1 you found helpful?
What are some books you'd recommend, which fall in the self help category? PS - I don't read a lot of books, but this category interests me.
Would request you to share a brief synopsis of the book too, to explain how the same is worth a read.
Best self-help books? Can be career, love, motivation...anything that you found really helpful!
I’m dealing with severe anxiety about my future. Woke up at 4 this morning and found it difficult to get back to sleep. I’ve talked to a therapist and family, taken medication, and read self-help books, nothing seems to work. I feel as though it’s never going to get better.

Heartbroken - found out yesterday that someone very close to me in my family who has been clean for 10+ years (addicted to coke and alcohol, used it as a crutch for sexuality issues), relapsed recently and has started casually drinking again. I am the only one who knows this, and if it gets around, it will mess everything up for him. At a loss about what I can do to help, but also want to communicate to him that I think it’s a very bad idea that he start drinking again. I think the main reason he has started drinking again is because he is a single gay man in his 50s who wants companionship. Advice and support is appreciated.
Back to School Body Armor Sales are peak Americana and equally hilarious and depressing.

Need 11 💙 to unlock DM 🙌
We’ve been attending a church for about 6 months now and trying to decide if it’s our church home. The only reason I’m hesitant is because people don’t seem to engage with us as much as I expected. For example, I told the pastors wife about a serious diagnosis we recently received and she did pray for us on the spot, but no one has reached out to us at all to check in. Am I expecting too much?
What's it like at Red Bull?
One of the hardest things about consulting is having to be “on” all the time and feeling the need to always look/be busy. Fake it til you make it?
Anyone have a company or person who created their firm's conflict check procedures? Is that even a thing? I'm just feeling overwhelmed with figuring out how I'm going to keep track of it, especially as I grow. With so many things to keep track of as a solo I feel like this is one I would rather delegate.

I’ve recently started a job at a big law firm in Chicago doing litigation defense and I’m curious about other’s billing entry practices. At my former job (a small firm in Chicago) I used a steno pad to write down the matter, time, and brief description. Then at end of day or following morning I will transfer from paper to the billing program. I’m curious if anyone believes they have a more efficient way. How do you enter your time? What method do you choose - block entry or as you go?
