Meet with your associates and senior associates as well as your peers from other teams to help you onboard. Not only will these meetings help build rapport, they will also help you fill any gaps you may have about digital assuming you're not completely clueless as you were hired as a manager.

Listen. A lot. Pick and choose where you contribute at first. You know how to manage but you don't know the ins and outs of digital. So manage first and learn along the way.

Ask lots of good questions, demonstrate you are leaned in and ready to learn. Do your research and you should be fine.

I know my relationship isn’t right for me. We are different people after 5 years. We still get along fine and love each other, but I don’t think we are as compatible long term. However I know my SO isn’t as doubtful about it as I am bc we talked about It. I am struggling to lose the comfort of our relationship, and having to break their heart bc I still care a lot. Idk. This decision is causing me a lot of anxiety and depression. I don’t want to lose them, but not sure they are right for me.

Hey CDs, do you find it stressful to have creative teams that just don’t bring it. I have a couple that consistently table interesting and well crafted ideas and a couple that don’t and I feel I need to take up the slack. Management don’t want to let them go because of the current tightening of the labor market. I feel like these teams have me over a barrel and there’s very little I can do about it.

My dream agency interviewed me. Asked who my seniors were and poached one of them.

I am a little rattled by this experience. Did they only interview me to see who the seniors are and what everyone did? Is this okay for agencies to do?

I've only ever had 3-4 interviews so far...and I am not quite sure how to feel about this. Or if this is common. Or if I am overthinking.
