Partner One

Hey Partners! I accepted a position at another firm and was bumped from manager to Senior consultant level. Could you give me some advice on 3 key things I can focus on to help me re-advance quickly?

Hi McBee! First, if you are the meme-master McBee then keep up the meme game and bring your new firm some fame. Ok, real advice: you don’t control Your promotion so don’t focus on it. Focus on the things you do control that others use when making promotion decisions. And what you need to control is outcomes. Specifically, the outcomes you want to create are: 1. Clients so happy they want to buy more 2. Team members who feel valued and who feel they are growing in their roles 3. Partners who trust you enough to give you room to do what you do best

Thanks so much! Haha and no, I'd like to be much more low key moving forward 🤐

Congrats! Focusing on speed can actually become a mental obstacle that holds you back. I'd suggest that you work hard to learn what your new firm does and how they do it, and what the expectations of you are. As you learn, your maturity and experience should help to differentiate you from your peer group. Good luck!

SO has issues keeping it up. I’ve asked what I can do to make it easier/more enjoyable/etc. but he just has to be in a very specific mood. Understandable but disappointed as I have a higher drive

Don’t know where this needs to be said - but black people are the first to claim prejudice against others, but they themselves are the most racist against other minorities (e.g., against Asians).
