I’ve recently come to realize that I have a very dark sense of humor— so much so that people are taken aback (maybe because it doesn’t match my appearance). I can’t help what I find funny, but I don’t want to scare people. To me— it’s just a joke about absurd our world is, to them— it’s a reflection of something dark within me? I’m generally a happy person, and I don’t want to project otherwise. Thoughts on what to do here?

Hello Accenturian sharks, what would be the range of CTC for Senior Manager in ACN S&C?
Please guide. Thanks.
I have a team member who has a tendency to miss deadlines, is reluctant to take on tasks which they don't like or refuses to participate in company-wide mandates w/o me & the other team members validating the why's. Prior to joining my team, this behavior was alluded to but never told to me directly. Now I'm seeing it. I've discussed missed deadlines which are acknowledged but w/o permanent resolution. I'm going to give her a verbal warning in the upcoming review. Other suggestions?
