I am feeling extremely stressed as when return from holiday will meet the new Director who came on board last week. As those who know my saga over the last year I have received reprimands, PIP, and poor performance evaluations. I realize that there is truth to all my failures at this job but also was a result in part of my inability to navigate effectively in a very toxic/dysfunctional workplace environment. So I thought that i should prepare a response to these documents to discuss if given the opportunity with the new director but will admit I am at a loss as to what to say. Is it better to just acknowledge them all, and simply say that I have been trying to improve and leave it at that or should I try to explain more? Thanks for any advice and thoughts.
