Conversations or expectation re-sets with clients around the “reality of 2020”?
Ie: Pandemic, deaths, quarantine, work from home, remote school learning, layoffs, economy, isolation, politics, police brutality, civil rights protests, forest fires, riots, police state tactics, RBG, plus all the other “normal” bad things. It feels like the elephant in the room.

Other than a brief mention of “crazy times” at the beginning of your zoom call, we all march on as if nothing is wrong. As if our people aren’t overwhelmed, in despair, angry, sad. We are selling creative and strategic thinking by people who can barely think straight some days. Project management by people who struggle to manage their home/work responsibility. Financial mgt by people struggling with financial impact on the economy, their partners and family/friends laid off, struggling to pay bills.
Working long days to grow our clients profits when we’d rather be marching in the streets.

How do we stay human? How do we say I AM HUMAN. I am not 100%. I am not ok. I can’t march on as if nothing is wrong. How do we say time out. Something has to give.

My manager hired an intern for the team two months ago, he’s fairly quiet and shy and doesn’t speak much usually. When my manager did my review she told me that the intern said that by the time he gets to speak, we’re already done discussing. However, most of the times that the three of us would speak is during status meetings. She thinks that I have poor comm skills and don’t give another person a chance to talk (not my intention). How should I tackle this situation and show improvement?
