Relationships are going to be huge in an alternative school. They need to know they can trust you and that you are there for them before they’re really ready to learn from you. I think that you’re probably doing the right thing it just feels weird.

I thought everything was going great at the beginning of the year but then they got rowdier and I got more stressed and now they’ve just written me off forever.

Stay consistent with your expectations so that they have solid structure that they can trust won't change, and lead with your heart. I know it can be hard but try to be patient and firm. The year isn't over yet! They will come around ❤

I’ve been in your shoes. I must say being professional while also showing them empathy and that you’re human too goes a long way.

This is a hard place but you got this! You gotta build relationships. That is the most important. They feel betrayed by whatever. System, family, friends and etc. You have to be there rock. Someone they can look up to and know that they can do this whole thing called life. You got this!!!!

They are watching you very closely. Make sure that any disciplinary action is consistent and fair. Having a good sense of humor goes a long way, too. Makes them feel comfortable around you.

At this point some of them have already made up their minds about me and won’t budge, but some just bow to peer pressure. I’m letting it roll off my back

2) a lot, so if I can hang in there it’ll be okay, but is this approach too passive? This setting is just a lot different from what I’m used to.

I’d love to discuss best practices for leave management. Anyone have any tips on which systems to leverage (HRIS, etc.) and approval workflow that they’d like to share? 🙂

Hey friends. How much have people cut their rates w/ the pandemic? I have a gig through a staffing firm at $80/hr. Pre COVID was at $112/hr or $900 day. Trying to get them to bring it back up because I’m not even working 40 hrs & w/ taxes as barely making above unemployment. How much should I push them? What rates are people seeing for senior strat / associate director?

Is consulting losing its appeal due to the lack of travel? And if so, will firms have to raise base salaries to attract talent? (I’m specifically talking about Strategy Consulting)

I’m working in a small-ish firm and thinking about leaving. I’m close with my supervising attorney, and having trouble figuring out if or when I should him that I’m making the jump. Do I give him a heads up now (I’m not worried about getting fired, but it could be a little awkward if the search takes a while), or wait until I actually have a new job? The firm has been good to me; I just don’t like the area of work. Any advice would be appreciated!

Right now, I have $150K sitting in my bank account. I know I shouldn’t let it sit there but I’m saving to go to grad school in 3 years and am nervous about covid / economic impact of investing. How should I invest money / what should I do with it?
