I'm in a senior leadership role and ready to move on to the next thing. I've been looking on LinkedIn and Indeed, but my search needs more attention. Are headhunters geographic, by field, etc? This is all new territory to me.

Salary request question…
I recently interviewed with a medium-sized medical center for a position as a Practice Manager in NC. The job entails managing three physician’s offices in three different physical locations. Since I don’t have any experience in the medical field but I do have managerial experience, how would I come up with a salary $ amount? This is the first time in my 20+ years of working that I’ve been asked to do this. Help pls!

This is how most of my generation and younger feel.
What's going to happen as more boomers retire, and there is no one to take their place, because employers can't be bothered to train younger people anymore?
TRAIN NEW EMPLOYEES. You're never going to find the perfect employee. Stop requiring 5 years experience for entry level positions. Stop with the 3 to 4 round interviews.

I'm launching my own HR/Management consulting company and am currently working on digital courses for new managers.
What would be some courses you think new managers MUST have, LIKE to have, NICE to have? And who would you recommend I target these courses too? Companies? HR professionals?

Wondering if i should stay or go.
For over a year I was in an immensely toxic situation with my boss. Won't go into details but suffice it to say that my therapist has been using phrases such as emotional abuse and trauma to describe my experience. He's had HR run ins before and obviously nothing substantial was ever done.
I managed to work out a transfer to another group. But I had to give up my formal role, and have been blocked from participating in my previous group's programs, was taken off the high pot list, and am fighting to get the credit I deserve for my annual review. It seems like while I endured abuse, my career is raking the hit.
The new group's manager has been excellent so far. It's like night and day. However I am most likely going to receive an external offer in the next couple of weeks. Wondering if I should take it. Would be burning bridges with the folks on the new group. The new offer would be much similar to my previous role that I had to give up but would be a slight paycut.

I started this new job a couple months ago and I’m starting to realize they expect a lot out of me. I’ve experienced burnout from my last job and I could see it happening again. This new job expects perfection with speed and when I’m a newbie perfection doesn’t come with speed very easily. I’m still recovering from the stress and impact the last job had on me. How can I prevent burnout from happening again?

I'm trying hard not to take this personally, but it's becoming hard not to.
I posted a few weeks ago about my boss and 60/90-day goals. I did what many people suggested and put together my own list of action items, and started charting a course to complete these tasks. I've put together agendas for our 1:1s (my boss had mentioned liking it when other people put together agendas for meetings) and sending them to him in advance of our meetings. Last week, there was some confusion about if we were going to meet or not, and ended up not meeting (and he didn't look at the agenda either--it's in Google docs so I can tell who opened it last). Yesterday, he emailed me to confirm our meeting today, and to ask if we could move our regular meeting time to a different day and time moving forward. I said sure, move it, and here's the agenda for when we meet tomorrow. Of course, I came in today, and he emailed that he won't be in because he's sick. Of course, it doesn't look like he reviewed my agenda to at least get a sense of what I've been up to for the last two weeks.
At this point, I'll be at the 60-day mark at the end of this week and I feel like even absent of the actual goals, this person has no idea what I'm working on or how well I may or may not be doing in this role. I'm just really frustrated because I'm worried that all of a sudden I'm going to get a laundry list of action items that need to be done before my 90-day mark (which will include the offices being closed for Christmas) and that I won't be able to get it all done, or that they'll want to extend my probationary period or something.
I had a really hard job search before landing this role, and the last thing I want is to find myself back on the market for something that wasn't even my fault. Part of me wants to either directly or indirectly ask my boss if they intend for me to be successful in this role at all.
