For some reason, it reminds me of this! There was this guy that would always touch my hand/shoulder whenever he talked to me! And always passed by too close to my butt in the pantry. Thank goodness I got rolled off that project 😭

I’ve been asked to be a PM and Account Director in a hybrid role and now have people telling me that I’m not driving the team’s overall vision in line with client goals. I get so stuck in the day to day and have never in 6 months been given one positive piece of feedback. I am truly in shock and starting to feel depressed. What books, blogs or people do you recommend that I go to for help with managing teams? The situation is unfair but I need help to address how I can better manage.

Trouble networking virtually; I started recently, 3 months ago. I am not sure how projects/internal moves work but I was wondering if anyone has advice on networking virtually? I am finding it tricky because I don't know anyone apart from my team & I can't view Talent Marketplace because I am on a billable project, not sure how long it will go. I enjoy my work and not looking to move just yet, I wanted to see what else is out there and looking for opportunities to network with more people.
