He is allowed to do this by his SPED teacher. It is getting scary for me because he is so unpredictable. I ask for help but the department doesn’t want to do anything different. What can I do? I’m so over fearing.

I signed up for an industry leadership role last year. It's much more difficult than I had presumed. The firm expects me to influence partners across competencies to deliver growth. Obviously the partners have their own priorities. I'm just figuring out how tough it is to be a leader without authority. I'm learning the ropes. Any insights from your similar journey would be useful. (Pls don't extol the virtues of being a line partner. I won't go back without fighting hard).

Struggling with how cutthroat sales are. I own an account, have been working it for a few years, introduced a concept last year and have been working it since then.
