Leadership and then follow guidance. Unless you're going to work for the client, leaving with a good taste in leaderships mouth is more important than the client feeling good about your departure

I would say take client out for lunch/dinner and tell him then. But always let key project members know before that.

You could handle it two ways 1) tell your leadership and tell them given your close relationship you would like to tell the client (you don't have to tell them where you are going). 2) tell the client as a heads up given your relationship before they hear from official channels ( a tadbit risky). If you are a key stakeholder for client on consulting side you might not have planned any backfill / mitigation process so depends on how your client handles it. Lastly, you don't have to tell your firm where you going - always, say exploring / considering other options but not certain yet; might take some time off - just update your LinkedIn in a few months

Uncle D, main concern in being able to successfully have time to discuss with the client myself in case I get forced out. But worst case, can still reach out afterwords to maintain contact

Following to see if they let you stick out the next two weeks or escort you out

If you're going to a competitor very likely you get rolled off instantly

Do not tell the client until you have given your team leadership a few days to plan your replacement.

as a follow up, I have 2-3 days next week before being done. Apparently I'm important

^^Sounds like you'll be a perfect fit at D. Good luck OP

This weekend I accidentally sent an email to OC that was supposed to go to the client. I didn’t have the clients email and only had the OCs email, but I still should have double checked before sending. It ended up not being a huge deal bc it was a mostly agreed upon settlement agreement and my senior associate and partner walked me through a follow up email to OC. They were pretty cool about it, but I can’t stop cringing. How do I try to move forward and not feel totally idiotic about this??

I feel I'm a minority in corporate culture. I came from public school up to Uni years where only few of my peers reached managerial level or even good positions. I reached out to a high schoolmate and saw she got the lowest rank in the company despite 10+ year experience. I have hard time connecting with peers who have a more upscale background. I also feel an imposter since I dont have the stereotype background of a manager --- rich, smart, cool etc. How do I deal with these insecurities?
