if the many factors are fixable then yes you can recover

I had a series of emotional & personal issues that caused me some turmoil so my work products were inconsistent and often required significant rework. I thought I did the work in requesting feedback but the engagement is incredibly fast paced and I didn’t have a ton of onboarding or mentorship for the position. All of that to say, I was ill prepared and ill equipped for the position and it showed

OP, that’s tough but good you’re recognizing the issue. We do work very fast with limited onboarding and high performance standards. Building your network will help because they can show you what good looks like for your firm, and show you shortcuts. Keep at it. You can definitely recover as long as you keep learning. It takes a while :)

We all have bad engagements, OP. Pick yourself back up, brush it off, learn from your mistakes and move forward.

Can my career recover from this?

DM me

What were the „many factors“? Caused by your personality - hard to fix Caused by knowledge lack - easy to fix Consulting is rough. Experienced, very good people are sometimes rolled off „just because“. Most important: do not take it personally, ask for open and direct feedback and try to fix it. You will be fine when you show quick learning and clear improvements.

How did you bomb it?

Send me a message if you want to discuss in private about the factors and need some ideas whether those factors are fixable and how to . Also sometimes it’s totally not one persons fault

Why did you bomb it? Serious question so that I can offer advice :)

Be on the lookout for Attribution Bias in yourself & on your team. It's a hindrance to creating a high-performing, inclusive culture.

Now the document is just a mess of deletions and restorations of the same language because I shouldn't accept things, apparently. I've never seen this before. Anyone have relevant experience?
