So we had a monthly meeting with the leadership team today to review information on our clients. I always hate going last but that is always the order I end up in. I feel like everyone is just so bored by the time they get to me and that no one is listening. It hurts even more when you hear people having sidebar conversations while you are trying to present. To me that is disrespectful and it just makes me feel useless and completely unimportant.
I had my annual review today, even though I had only been back with the company for about 5 months. The comments were how well I was doing and the only critique was I need to speak up more during team meetings. It was good feeling to start off the day but then to go into the last meeting of the day feeling like an unimportant annoyance. Just not how I wanted to finish the day.
