Reps how do you handle when a producer requests reels from you then doesn’t watch a single one and completely ghosts you after submission?

I remember them.

It’s never what I think of them it’s why they choose to request reels if they aren’t planning on viewing them. I separate business from personal so it’s never a slight on them personally, more a question of why not just reach out to the reps who handle the companies you want to see reels from. It’s a huge amount of time for reels to be presenting for a project both by the rep and the EPs in getting not only rostered but off roster folks vetted and cleared. Respect the process.

Today was my first day at a new company and my anxiety is through the roof - I couldn’t help but feel awkward around everyone, I’m meeting clients on Wednesday, and I’m terrified overall that (cont.)

Now I'm in a client location, My manager is a good person but he told me, I should report to Lead.

Lead is a psycho. He shows hell to the team members including me.
What should I do ?

How do you handle aggressive, hard-ass leadership?

I was on a group strategy call and our VP says "OK *account manager* (me), we have decided that your new focus needs to be electronics, do you understand that?" He said it in a very stern tone of voice. Well of course I understand it because it was my f*cking idea that I brought to his attention prior to Christmas.

IMO, this guy does nothing. He steals the ideas of his team members and then acts like tyrant in front of people.

My unpopular opinion: more mid-levels need to be asked to leave. I try my best to be patient and get that juniors make mistakes and have a steep learning curve. But I am working with 4th-6th years who don’t respond to emails, can’t produce written product that doesn’t need substantial revision (basically rewritten), ignore directions/deadlines, have terrible attitudes, etc. They haven’t changed over years despite repeated trainings/attempts to help them. Is this true at your firm?

I have a problem, I over explain myself and when I do it with my women colleagues I think they get the impression that I'm mansplaining to them.

Is there a way to do this where I don't run the risk of offending my colleagues? I certainly don't mean to imply incompetence.
