I had a client presentation today. In my head, I thought that I did really bad and I was really nervous while presenting. My self talk afterwards was all negative. I had recorded it and was even dreading going back and listening to how poorly I performed because I thought it would further destroy my confidence. But I decided to do it anyway and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as bad as I thought when I listened to it from a 3rd party perspective. Just thought I'd post this. (Contd)

Please advise!!

My manager asked me to setup 30 minutes one on one meetings for every other week. He attends the meetings and starts taking about project related topics rather than one on one related topics.

How do I respectfully tell him to stick to one on one topics?

On another note, are one on one meetings with boss too much when done every other week? Some times I run out of topics to talk about.

My FB title is no updated but I moved to industry role and no longer in consulting.
