I am a project management consultant that started work on a large contract a few months ago and my supervisor received feedback from the client with concerns of me being a "cultural fit" with the organization. My supervisor asked was this performance related and the response was no but their had been complains by a few staff members about my style. This organization has issues and I believe that being held accountable for missed deadlines etc was new to many but they are the client. My supervisor who has been working with this client for a while was very supportive and gave me good feedback (tone down the dress no more suits, increase communication, cheerful persistence, etc) and it seems to have worked.
That being said has any other "MT" style manager received pushback in a challenging work environment like this?
