Most of our engagements, if not all, are targeted towards operations, digital, tech, human capital that in most cases reduces the bottom line or increases top line for the clients. The engagement sponsor is happy and goes up the ladder and gives us an even bigger pie next time. Have we truly done engagements that were for the greater good of the world, climate, water, health, society, infra, education? Would love to hear some examples.

I’m 32 single, no kids, own my home, essentially have life by the tail. I live an hour from where I grew up. Feel like I don’t fit in with my friends anymore…

I have this problem that I picked up from my father growing up: can’t effectively communicate negative feelings to people that I’m close with. I sort of expect them to know, and when they don’t get it or don’t show efforts that I’m expecting to receive, I start to distance myself from them and shut down. I started to reflect back on why I do this, and sense that this is some kind of a sick way of showing I have more power over the other person. How can I fix this?
