I’m having my first conversation with my McKinsey Professional Development Manager. Any tips on what to come prepared with to get the most out of it? How have you handled this relationship and how meaningful has it been? Still a couple of weeks before my start date.

My sister (15y) had this clash with one of her “friends” and now the whole group is going after her, telling her these negative, toxic things. I feel this will have an impact for her in the long run. I am supporting her and telling her not to listen, talk, nor interact with them out of self respect and to let it play out. She followed my advice, but it still hasn’t stopped. She is scared they might bully her. Should I take this in my own hands or let her figure it out and solve it herself?
