Don’t be afraid to speak up and ask questions

…I’d been given to read should have sufficed, but having to piece things together on my own without anyone really having taken me through it. I’m at Consultant level, which means I should be able to operate independently. And generally I am, but how can I operate independently when I have no clue what’s going on and my manager acts like I should. It’s really frustrating and I sense that at some point they will become frustrated too. How do I communicate this in a constructive way?

Take another C or analyst aside, schedule a call, and talk about the project. Ask your questions there. They’ll give you the blunt response

We currently use Basecamp and I just don’t love it for client communication and I don’t feel like it fully doesn’t we need project management wise.

The problem is a lot of our clients are busy b2b owners and don’t want to be going into a new tool to approve things… any recommendations?
