Why are you choosing to stay in those situations with clients or colleagues like that? Either have a crucial conversation about it with them to bring about change or maybe consider working for a team and clients where mutual respect and continued improvement is part of the norm. I’m sorry either of you are having to deal with such nonsense!!

Agree with the commenters above. I am referring to a client team who has not had a lead on their end for months. The rest of their team hasn’t functioned well since. In my experience, larger clients get to do what they want
