I’m in our consulting arm. And I just got placed on a project that wants me to travel onsite for a discovery workshop 2 weeks from now. It’s making me incredibly nervous because I’ve never had to travel for work before! I’ve always been on local projects in past consulting jobs and my most recent job was in industry, where it was in the same city as me. I feel so nervous, having to fly alone, and be in a new city alone, which I’ve also never done. In addition, having to engage with clients..cont
Hiring a Director of HR - fully remote - amazing company
How do y’all deal with people at work who are stuck on stupid? Like they have no idea what they’re talking about and they REFUSE to learn. It’s like they have a god complex or something even with proof, maybe bc of their tenure at the company? Even if there’s valid data backing up that they’re wrong. Maybe it’s bc I’m a type 8 enneagram, but it frustrates the hell out of me!
So any advice would be lovely :)

Dear women in leadership:
Have you ever experienced passive aggressive responses to your role in leadership? If so, how do you handle the micro-aggressions?
For example, I’ve experienced people:
- asking me “do you understand?” though my experience is more senior
- deferring to the male in the room for decisions though I am the senior lead
- not responding to my requests unless I copy other leaders (who are usually male)
What micro-aggressions have you have experienced?

Any ladies dealt with a stinky trash bin that just won’t stop stinking? Have googled all the cleaning tips (soak cotton balls in essential oils and stuff in rim, clean out whole bin with baking soda, put baking soda at the bottom before you add the bag, spray it with febreze/other fragrance, etc.). Like I deep cleaned the bin, took out my trash, and threw no bloody/raw/stinky food products. 2 days later, already smelled just as bad as before. I even lit a candle today, smell broke through 😡
