Haven't seen anyone put "Available for Staffing" in their Skype location. Seeks like it would be helpful for people in your network to know you're free without contacting everyone. Any downside?

Yeah, who checks people's Skype location?

It would save me time looking up / asking around who is free. If it became the norm it would work well, but when it's not the norm it may seem desperate

Hmm this is an interesting approach. Does it send the wrong message?

D1- that was exactly my thought, I don't wanna seem desperate but it's a great idea.

Is that a euphemism?

Do it. 👍🏻👍🏻

How do you set personal boundaries? One of my colleague is new to the team, so I understand she may be struggling at times to get up to speed. But she is constantly asking me to get on Zoom after work hours (8-9 pm) to walk her through stuff. Even when I told her I’m out busy, she would keep asking when would I get home so I can jump on a meeting with her.

I am the lone woman on the company leadership team. This is the 2nd time I’ve scheduled a 1:1 w the COO and he no-showed with no forewarning. I sat on Zoom for 10 mins both times. The purpose of the call was to discuss low morale and my opinions and volunteering on action steps. How do I communicate with him on this? Pretend it never happened and try a 3rd time? Confront it head on?
