...since I’ve been back (a year). However the M role is not in my alignment area - I am going to align to strategy but took a local role as an M in tech. The role has been fairly strategic and I’ve done well but leadership is less influential for strategy. Even more nervous if the convo ends up being around firm initiatives because I’ve pretty much dodged them since returning although I do a fair amount of account planning work. Thoughts on chances of promotion?? Hate that I even have to ask.

Not sure how it is at D, but the firm initiatives and going outside of just your role/giveback is an important part of promotion, especially once you get to M and above. Also, make sure you were truly performing at an M level, rather than just filling a role.

At D all you need to do is show you have the capability to be at the M level via project work. The initiatives are extra or get you a higher rating.
