I have one foot out the door in my current role (was unhappy pre-Covid, has become worse during Covid)...and I am having a challenging time in my personal life currently, Both of these things combined I feel are effecting my feedback style. I am a little shorter, easily frustrated & unmotivated. I worry I am making it harder for my creative team who I care about a lot. Im not sure how to address it, as it feels fairly personal. Has anyone been in a similar scenario & did you get past it?
