Worst part is this was an airport driver, who is incentivized to use maps software- increases their earnings per hour. Plain stupidity and arrogance that their "experience" and "knowledge" is more accurate than google maps/Waze.

Many cab drivers use Waze or Google. You got a bad one.

My first engagement leading a team, does anyone have advice for a new manager (who is also new to consulting)?

I will be managing a team on a multiple month engagement and could use any applicable advice related to kicking off the project, project management, managing expectations, etc.

I’m at a smaller firm that does not have much structure or collateral to leverage, so thought this would be a great place to crowdsource advice. TIA!

My neighbors are super nice and friendly, mostly seniors. One of my neighbors is constantly asking me to go for coffee. Last night when I was returning from my evening walk, he got a bit aggressive about it. He was walking his dog.
