I’m preparing to put my two weeks in at work. I’m not worried about leaving the company, but I’m nervous about leaving my team while we’re knee-deep in a project. I’ll be around for shooting and early editing our commercial (which is the bulk of the campaign), and I’m definitely able to hand off other small tasks, but I can’t help but feel anxious to tell them I’m leaving. Is this a normal feeling?

Yes! I was working on a big brand launch a few months ago and was gearing up for another massive shoot so my departure made everyone nervous and overwhelmed. But as usual every company figures it out. They’ll be ok. Make sure you document everything, any tips you have for the work and get ahead if you can on anything so they feel good about it.

Yes it’s normal, and a sign that you care about your team. It’s good that you’ll get through the shoot and edit; that’s a tough thing to hand off. They’ll be ok. And good luck!

Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
