How do you guys deal with poor senior leadership? I like the people I work with, but the head sponsor of our team is toxic. As a newer team member, it seems everyone else fears this 1 person.

Do YOUR job to the best of your ability. Everything in life changes, including senior leadership. Chances are that people senior to the person you're describing are aware of the issue, and are looking for an appropriate way to change the dynamic.


You can ask off the Account after you've been there a few months...but I'd have your book/resume ready before you do.

Sponsor of the team, what is that please? Like the EVP who does drive bys? The client? The AA meeting person? Thanks.

Chances are the senior people in your company are too wimpy to deal with the problem. If others on your team agree with you go to the top and address the problem It won't go away otherwise

I just picked up my 8 week old goldendoodle pup and brought him home 3 hours ago (4pm). He had dinner and had a potty accident before and after dinner. He looks really sad and does not want to interact besides wanting to cuddle up and lay down in my lap. I’m a little worried but also wonder if it’s coz he really hasn’t napped much since the time I picked him up at the breeder at 1pm. Could he be sick? Should I be worried. When I took him outside for potty breaks he just huddled away and sat 😥
