I sometimes get like this. But I am self-aware, and try to be at least moderately outgoing.

The truth is consulting is more geared towards outgoing people. So you have to be at least moderately good at connecting with colleagues as well as clients.

How do you prove to HR that your micromanager is retaliating against you for speaking up? For context, last week I brought up to my manager that he can’t use the “I’m the manager” excuse every time to get my team and I to do stuff without a valid business reason behind. By EOD friday, he pings me and assigns me a project and tells me that I’m stationed at another building and to collect my belongings. He didn’t give me clear instructions or clarified who I’m going to be working with.

I do like parts of my job, particularly my colleagues. But we are so understaffed it’s insane.
