Don’t forget to breathe. Don’t allow stress to overpower you. Be kind to yourself. Keep your chin up. Ask for help. Communicate.

Someone I used to work with at another firm wants a referral for a role to manage my team. I don’t want to report to them, but if I refuse to refer and they get hired any way, it wouldn’t look good.
