I bought a secret lab Titan. You can get them the right size for you (they have different models) and they can be adjusted fully for your desk size/arm length/leg length etc. $400 isn’t cheap, but like D1 and D2 said above I’ve had no pain at all since buying, even after 11+ hour days. Good luck in chair hunting!

Good to now - I was eyeing it for my Husband - similar build as you and just had the concern on the base. Sounds like it may be a great fit

Buy a butt pillow and a back support pillow. That’s literally all you need. and make sure you are sitting with proper posture.

Herman miller aeron . I had terrible back ache prior to this chair but no pain since I got it. Found mine on sale second hand

Are you sure it’s from the chair ? May be from all the work you’re doing by caring the team.

You might try getting a little back pillow or something to push your lower back forward and keep it in alignment. Might not need a new chair if that works

I went with the elevate because it wasn’t that much more expensive and seemed like it had more features? I can’t really remember why but I love it!

I love my Steelcase Gesture. It wasn't cheap, but it was worth every penny. Even on my longest days, I'm not in pain.

The Lazy Boy office chair at Costco is pretty legit

For a temporary/economical solution before investing in a new chair - consider getting the smallest sized Chirp wheel, and stick it along your middle back, between your back and the back of the chair (like in the picture). It helps improve posture (and back pain) and you can roll on it during breaks!

I got promoted but my husband did not. We both work for the same company in different groups and are at different levels. I’m absolutely gutted for him and so mad at his team for allowing him to be blindsided. He is handling it as well as can be expected but is crushed. He is in no way taking it out on me or diminishing my good news but I just feel horrible. I know time is really the only cure but am wondering if others have ever had something similar happen? Trying to be supportive somehow.

Moving into a management role and am slightly nervous about leading a team’s personal and professional development. Any good recs on books/classes I can take in meantime to ease my anxiety? Process I have no problem with, but want to make sure I’m doing right by the people I will be leading.
