I don't know jack shit, and will completely understand if my clients/senior peers don't give me any respect at all. Thank you covid and the great resignation for this wonderous and hilarious opportunity.

To managers and senior managers in big 4, how do you support your seniors to be promoted to manager? I have a senior manager on a big job, who always talks over me and once I explain something he always reexplains it as though I never explained it properly which brings my confidence down. Should I be more assertive and ask him why he is doing it?
