Let me set the scene:
Monday: In a meeting with staff I present to them a marketing plan with the aim to get their feedback on best marketing ideas.
Thursday: A general meeting of managers including my line manager who asks ‘Whats the consensus with the staff with regard to the marketing plan?’…a deathly silence as I cannot understand what he has just asked, my brain did not recognise the word consensus…I said ‘I’m sorry what do you mean?’. So embarrassing as I know what it means and fully understand the context that it was presented. I looked like a total tool, I was suddenly very aware of myself, a small woman in a room full of men, my confidence faultered.
I’ve had a few of these episodes lately along with feeling lightheaded and fuzzy, can anyone relate?
