My counselee does not have boundaries. She expects me to be her best friend (we’re 2 of like 4 women in our offering) and gets mad/rude when I tell her I need to work, or try to distance myself from her and establish boundaries. The other day she made a snide comment in a meeting with the PPMD that I told her I was busy so she went and asked my client and learned that I wasn’t busy enough to chat with him so clearly I wasn’t busy. How do I manage this clueless and disrespectful practitioner?

I have a boss that always canceled meetings with me including performance reviews. I’ve been trying to get on his calendar to let him know I’m leaving but just getting more of the same.

How do you get past the “guilt” of leaving a company full of people who you like and respect? Currently on a project where I really cannot be replaced this last minute & have the project end successfully. My managers have also repeatedly checked in on me and made it very clear that they want to keep me / are doing everything they can to help me grow at the company. Still, I am not passionate about the work at ALL and want to leave. Just can’t make myself start looking because I feel so guilty.

Interviewing tip needed: I feel like a diversity hire at most of the companies I have worked for. A sentiment that is felt by other diverse colleagues at my job. When looking for a new job, what questions can I ask to find this out before I join? How can I assess whether a company truly values my skillset, pay equally, & promote equally? Whether there are implicit biases at play? My current job has 2 diverse bosses at senior level so I took that as a good sign but I was wrong.
