I’m a newly promoted managing attorney-Right before the pandemic and all of us began working remotely. I’m having trouble getting my former coworkers to respect me as their supervisor. Some have been there way longer than me, some have developed poor work habits (previously our practice group did not have a MA). An intern got really disrespectful with me today in a text and then wouldn’t answer my call. Any suggestions? I really want to be a good manager and take our practice to a higher level

I just started working at a Digital Strategy Consulting Boutique firm but the company is in Europe and we work in another language entirely. I started off as an intern (8 months) and now I am working full time. I am trying to learn the language to be more interactive with the clients and in the meetings but it's super difficult. Should I switch or learn the language and stay here for another year? It's a small firm and the pay is not that great but good for beginners in the country. Any advice?
