I’ve been a CD for a few years now. And I’m starting to worry about getting stuck here. How do you move up to GCD or ECD levels? Is it usually an internal promotion or external opportunity?

Win lots of new business. Then take a few noticeably long lunches. If they truly value you they’ll start to get concerned.

Win new business, do award worthy work, have clients who love you, your peers respect you and look to you for leadership, you care more about making your team look good than yourself, are decisive, proactive, look good in black.

I have been poached by my manager about a promotion and am working on a review to share with him. I have continued to express my interest in working on an upcoming brand strategy work, my manager agreed verbally. I just found out that he actually gave the work to a new AE of my team. When I approached him, he didn't give much explanation but that my time will come. How should I navigate this?

What firm has the best workforce planning / analytics practices? I’m trying to think about where i want to go after promotion.

My grandparents never make an effort to ask about my life or how things are going. I’ve gotten a promotion, switched roles, etc and they’ve never asked about any new and exciting life events. When I finally do visit them all they can do is comment on my weight or how I look - basically anything they can nitpick about my appearance, and then guilt me for not visiting them more. Am I being dramatic by not wanting to interact with them anymore? Do they get a pass to be rude because they’re old?
