There is no such thing as "speaking off the record" when you're talking to someone above your grade level. Ever.

Love this week’s Friday reflection


Good admonition for the impromptu conversations with senior management. They are always evaluating who is their ally or their weakness. Also this is quite counter intuitive advice.

I remember some of my early 1:1s with manager was not work centered and I thought it was his way to build relationship. Few months later during my mid year review, realized that I did not meet the manager expectations but he never told me during these meetingst. Since then, my 1:1s with mgmt is strictly work related and then maybe a little ad hoc off work topic but not much. No surprises after that :) I learnt somewhere that most of our career decisions in a workplace is made when we are NOT in the room. So, I need to use my 1:1 with mgmt to make sure they have a good understanding of my contributions and aspirations.


Great advice. Very timely. Thank you dear Anand.
