Another golden rule: be tough!!
I am quite shy, a bit of a geek and much more analytical than argumentative.
Both supervisors have said “be tough, stand your ground. You know your stuff.”
In my previous job I was confident, running my own files and projects I knew exactly what was going on, what I wanted, what the client wanted and how I was going to get it.

The advice “be tough” actually worked. I got two leases agreed at the end of friday. Now i’ve just got to be tough and tackle a non-payment of service change and refusal to agree a lease which needs to be agreed (and ideally completed) this week.
