Got performance feedback and client feedback that I am too nice. I’ve been so conditioned to do whatever it takes to avoid the Angry Black Woman label that I went too far the other way. Damn.
Do you have a new project, unit, or lesson you are developing for next year? If so, can you share and inspire the rest of us?
Does anyone ever feel like they have to do ALL the thinking for their team? I know as strategists, we’re the secret sauce to a lot of goings-on with brands. However, I sometimes feel like folks on my team don’t actually think about how anything will impact the brand/strategy and then just come to me for insight on a half-baked idea that’s off strategy but for some reason has already been shown to a client…
Tfw a project you did that was a stinking trashfire is being talked up to the entire North America leadership team.... 😒
Given the option of (A) running a small-mid size recruiting dept in a smaller agency, or (B) recruiting client-side / in-house marketing department — which would be preferred, and why?
If agency/client teams made tomato bisque: "Tastes delicious. It needs hot sauce. Let's add that and pass it off to the sous chef." "Hmm, not sure about the hot sauce. Take it out and add some salt. Also let's put some squash in there. Let's let the head chef take a look." "No, let's go back to what we had before. Are we sure a spoon is what we need for cutlery?" "Forks are huge on insta right now. What if we did a two-tuned fork?" "YES. Okay, the maitre'd thinks we should put the squash back in." "Would it be possible to also put salt on the fork?"
The Trusted Advisor - Gain your client’s trust by thinking about someone other than yourself for once... at least that’s what I got out of it. It came highly recommended, and I’m underwhelmed...
It was mentioned to me that what’s holding me back from a promo is “getting more client reps.” I asked a colleague what they think this means and their answer was helpful but informally worded. Can someone help me word these into professional goals I can take to my RL to help me achieve? “You need to be front-and-center with the client, and present a significant amount of information to them that you owned start to finish. You need to be able to manage and work with the client”
Should I be worried if I have constantly bounced from short project to project (excellent performance) and don't really see myself with a single tangible/transferable skill? I'm 1.5 yrs in & 24.
Have you ever worked with a partner that points out every error you make (regardless if it’s nothing or a bigger error) but never points out anything good you do or says thank you? How do you not let it slowly chip away at your confidence and self-worth? I try to let it roll off my back, but it does ultimately affect me and my enjoyment of my job.

Person in my advisory office got laid off. Is my EY office an anomaly, or is this happening anywhere else ? Person was on bench for last month.

CSR now gives 10x for booking through the portal for hotels, but I’ve heard we won’t get Bonvoy points if we book through portal because it’s booked through 3rd party? Is that true? What about nights towards status?
