On Tuesday afternoon I received an invite via administrative assistant to meet with our senior executive my boss’s boss’s boss in three weeks. She wanted to make sure that I’ll be back from vacation by that day and I’ll be working that day.
The meeting is in three weeks and there was no agenda given and it was very vague. She said he won’t visit my office but meet with me at a maybe local coffee shop. Email Invite says she’ll keep me updated as she receives more information on the location where I’ll be meeting. I’m currently on vacation this week and this is shaping up to be a nerve-wracking vacation!
I haven't done anything wrong that I know about, so I’m assuming it will be something positive.
I have history of leading a very high performing teams. Company has given me a few different locations the past few years to manage and as soon as I get in, the production immediately increases. And the location becomes one of the high performing location in the company.
I should note that I manage a small team and have few direct reports. Now the only thing I might be overthinking about is I took over a new location recently few months ago and there was some employee issues. I took disciplinary actions with some of the employees. And employees that were being insubordinate complained about me as “micromanaging” to HR. I’ve dealt with these type of employees before that don’t like to be held accountable. But these employees has formed a clique and complained together to HR.
We moved around some of the employees so they won’t be gossiping and immediately the production increased at the office. My boss discussed this with me and let me know that there was no violation broken and suggested me to work on building trust with employees etc.
From your experience - senior executive wouldn’t get involved or come in person to visit if I did something wrong?
My boss must know about this meeting but he hasn’t said anything to me - HR, my boss or his boss would speak with me if I did something wrong instead of having 3 higher up executive involved? What are you thoughts? Am I overthinking here?
