I have one line manager on the contract, but my performance review (including salary increase, promotion, etc.) will be decided by three directors of whom I am a shared resource.
And there's lots of conflict. We have tried multiple methods to try and reach agreement, manage time and priorities among the three directors, but there are are very strong and sometimes verbal conflicts, which tells me that either their common boss is giving them conflicting instructions or their common boss doesn't know that I am used as a shared resource. The way the speak with each other when they argue gives me the impression that they assume director A has one information, but in fact has another.
Worst of all, they expect me to channel all the required information among the three of them, but I am usually the last to find out whatever was told to them by their boss... ultimately I am blamed for not having done things I never knew about.
So I think, if the common source and common denominator of this conflict is their common boss (the CEO in this case) shouldn't I bring the issue to the CEO to figure out how to solve this?
It's a huge communication issue and everyone expects either the other two directors to know it, or me to tell it - but I am literally the last person who gets to know the information.
Should I tell the CEO, and if yes, what's the most professional way to do so?
