How has your approach to D&I impacted the quality of your client engagements and relationships? Both positive and negative I'd you have instances of both.

Positives: clients also want to work less and I feel that the clients we attract work more in partnership with us than ever before. Negatives: it is not for every client, and it is Ok.

What are you doing differently in your recruiting efforts to keep the jerks out?

We are spending quite a lot of time understanding why people want to join us. And getting proper references (most companies actually don’t do it). But to be fair, we will make mistakes. For me, as important as not hiring jerks, it is dealing with them upfront when they start acting out. Question back to you: do you think people are “bad by nature” or lots of behaviour is induced by the (bad) environment?

After telling everyone to forget advancements and celebrate keeping our jobs, my agency announced a couple of promotions on account side. What should my action be? I don’t want to be the one left behind since even a title bump could be helpful in securing the next job.

So I dated this guy and ended up being fwb for a while. We also became friends and travelled together. At some point, I found myself not attracted to him physically anymore. He kept being flirty sometimes in text. For example, he would mention how much he loved my body and how he wanted to sleep with me in trips etc. I didn’t feel comfortable for such comments anymore so I told him that. He said he was just joking and didn’t take that seriously and kept making such jokes/comments. (see next)
