Anyone else ever feel their love language coming out at work? Today I bent over backwards (yes, these are the words I’m choosing) for a partner who hasn’t said “thank you” for any of it...can I get a couple (literally just two) words of affirmation PLEASE 😂

Think I’ll try giving him the cold shoulder until he asks me what’s wrong 🤔🤔

Maybe acts of service are the partner’s love language and they’re too busy reveling in your work 😂

Jokes aside, knowing what motivates people who work under you and doing that so that the people. Who work under you are motivated is a basic responsibility of any manager. Somehow partners can get away with completely failing at this responsibility, I don't get why.

I just am really not intrinsically motivated at all. But I am happy to drop other things to work hard for people who actually recognize the hard work and appreciate it. Otherwise I will get to your request in 3 to 5 business days 😬

I feel you so hard. Just a few words of affirmation and an act of service of a nice big fat bonus is all I ask for!

I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.

When leading a team through a reasonably large process change (e.g. changing from non existent to… something), is it a better idea to adopt a Big Bang approach (huge change, but all at once) or through smaller iterative changes (over many months)? What are the pros / cons of either approach? And any suggestions for dimensions to keep in mind when deciding?

https://joinfishbowl.com/comment_hvuwp The Single Consultants bowl can be great for advice across the spectrum, but then you always end up getting comments like this guy claiming that men and women are equally harassed and there isn’t enough attention on men for this. There is a comment before this in which I say that it’s absolutely not ok for harassment to occur to either gender, but harassment and fear of being attacked is a constant item women need to think about on a regular basis, and men so not. This was his response.
