I’m a little over a month in to my new role and feel like I keep choking on external calls I have. Thankfully my manager is on them and can jump in and I’m trying to learn and apply it next time but it’s killing my confidence. I also have this fear that I just don’t have the skills to have these conversations and will get fired. Any tips/thoughts/encouragement?

The essence of millennial/ gen z problems in corp America - i get an email late last night from my manager saying he wants to catch up with just me first thing in the morning.

Turns out he’s just picking me up for a couple of his jobs because he likes me. I’m a confident person generally, why do I do this to myself

Not sure how IG algorithm would evaluate interacting with bots
