Genuine question. Could you please share some examples of concrete changes implemented in the past year to make SEA a better place? E.g. for a long time I didn’t know you could take alternate week one night PTO off - which is a good thing. Asking this because I worry I might be missing out on some benefits like this 😀..

P&T is ‘central to our FY23 strategy’ and yet we had to beg and plead to even get a handful of P&T Directors to represent at the Director CLeX happening this week in San Diego.
Not feeling the ‘one firm’ narrative we push - completely tone deaf and sends a horrible message for P&T Directors.
Major missed opportunity to start bridging the divide - particularly at a level where the real work gets done.

Internal corporate strategy folks: what do you actually do? I know "corporate strategy" is a sexy title everyone wants, and that these roles are usually full of ex-MBB types, but I have no idea what these people do daily.
Searching the Internet has been useless in trying to figure out what internal corp. strategy folks actually do. Is it mostly cranking out decks and program managing a bunch of different initiatives?

At this point in the pandemic, I feel like 20% of the time I will wake up with zero motivation or interest in anything - not at the level of clinical depression or anything, but it is challenging to be productive at work on those days. Since taking sick days is a joke in consulting, anyone have good work arounds?

Hey all - how do you guys sell or lead things you aren’t genuine believing in? It’s almost like a fake it till you make it? I find it difficult to be behind a product or technology I don’t understand enough of or believe and I previously used to work in sales. Also any books/techniques which help. I am often too genuine or objective.

Fell out of the jetway again.....
British airways/ Iberia just lost my luggage. This is after downgrading me from business because of overbooking (ok, not the end of the world), making us wait for 2 hours for luggage (getting pretty pissed of at this point) and then telling me that mine wasn’t scanned and it’s not coming.When I asked where it was, their answers were ‘can’t see it on the system, we’ll call you tomorrow if we have any news’. I am boiling with rage. How fucking incompetent is the aviation industry at the moment?
