You put your anxiety aside, got together with a trusted co worker and together you focused on the positive. You just made lemonade out of those sour lemons. I’m so happy for you I could bust right now. You took some great positive steps.Thanks MATD! Simply putting the confrontation behind me and refocusing my energy on tasks and other things that I can control works for me after being so shaken up after witnessing someone act like Gordon Ramsay.
I spoke also privately with my colleague (Jennie) who was also there during the confrontational meeting. She is far more experienced than me and we went through everything going on with the project. With her help, we were able to list everything going right and put our manager at ease that everything is being tended to. Clear and respectful communication, confiding in colleagues, teamwork skills and anxiety management skills have helped me navigate this latest incident with minimal pain.
