I’m not a shy person, but I’ve always had issues speaking in front of groups. I grew up with a lisp (which I’ve since overcome), but I still stumble over my words a lot. I think COVID has exacerbated this a lot since I’m not able to see my teammates or read their body language. I’m a scrum master, so leading calls is sorta in the job description. Any suggestions on how to become a better professional speaker?

What does everyone think about what sales /pursuits will be like in the Covid and post-Covid world? Key changes you’re already noting (ex. not on site to meet f2f or “walk the halls”)?
We broke 3,000 COVID deaths today in an awful benchmark that looks to be topped tomorrow. Don’t let any Trump supporter say they’re pro-life. Wear a mask and get tested. https://t.co/7cNPfiIuy9

My anxiety/depression/imposter syndrome has relapsed throughout covid. Last year I had just started with therapy when covid hit and I slowly stopped because I don’t feel comfortable doing it virtually with roommates around. I feel like I had made all this progress and it’s just slowly fading away. I spend my weekends alone with my thoughts for so long that I feel lonely and cry. How are you all able to cope with this feeling that this is forever
Is Qatar airways a good option for parents coming from India in June? Are there any covid restrictions other than presenting a negative report? Their trip would be from New Delhi to Seattle if it matters
2 things I don’t understand: -if vaccinated people can still catch and transmit Covid why don’t employers have to make them test weekly? -why is there no recognition or option to provide antibody status for people who were sick and recovered from Covid?
So with further vaccine rollouts on the horizon, it will still be several months before COVID is "over." Whenever that happens, do you think this bowl will die or be renamed/repurposed to something else?
Just learnt FIL is in ICU under observation after contracting Covid. He has other pre existing conditions. Just became citizens this year and haven’t gotten around to doing the OCI card yet. Any guidance in how to get emergency visa or travel to Hyderabad would be greatly appreciated! Are there special flights & quarantine rules?
My AllBirds have literally saved my feet during this COVID craziness, and they have another pair for me, FOR FREE, on the way. Amazing company
So.. my husband and I live across the country from my family, including my young nieces. We haven’t seen them since before COVID and are not seeing anyone inside who is not vaccinated in our life, and this has not been a problem. We made a plan to vacation with my family to see them again this summer. My BIL is refusing to get vaccinated. Everyone else is vaccinated. My parents and sister aren’t happy about it but feel there is nothing they can do.
What’s market for signing bonuses (excluding Covid and year-end bonuses) for mid-to-senior associates at V25 firms?
Another lie from our car-salesman President. He just said we had the “largest testing capacity in the world”, and that “nobody’s done a better job at testing...” but we can’t test 100 Senators to keep the government running. https://www.axios.com/senate-doctor-mitch-mcconnell-coronavirus-testing-e99282f6-90f5-4e11-8b45-02548f38ab12.html

I'm having difficulty making personal connections with students this year. I teach hybrid, so I have a room half full of students in front of me and half at home on zoom. I have tried playing educational games, I greet them each time I see them, I try to do small talk, I make positive comments on their work, it just isn't happening. Any ideas?

I had interviews with Grant Thornton. The last manager I interviewed with said he didn’t know what the next steps were after he turns in his assessment. How long should I wait to ask the recruiter what the next steps are? Or is anyone familiar with the interview process ?
