I have been assigned a project and the manager is going to arrange a progress review meeting on a weekly basis. The manager and I do not get along and I will find every chance not to be in the same meeting as her.
I excel in all the projects that I have done so far. She is arranging these meetings so "secretlty" learn how to do the work and frankly I do not want her to learn from me when we are the biggest enemies (it really is that bad).
I cannot say I will not attend the meeting as she out ranks me. How do I cleverly find a way to avoid this?
I was thinking to say - in front of the client - is progress meetings are needed then it should be happening between the manager and the client directly without my presence to discuss any issues IT and myself present. As far as the meetings I need to attend are the ones I arrange directly with the client (this is how I have been doing for sever years) to clarify on the requirements and other matters that comes ad-hoc - for these to happen we dont need too many people and only essential people are needed ie, myself and the client. More people in the meeting more it costs.
What do you think? I really cannot stand her in the same meeting as I am in.
