Your higher-ups are constantly asking your team for progress reports and it’s just slowing everybody down. What can you do ? See what Mara and Hugo have to say.
Mara runs into Hugo at the water cooler. He looks discouraged.
- What’s the matter Hugo? You look upset this morning.
- I am, Mara. I don’t know how to handle the situation with management. I’ve got an amazing team who is working like crazy to meet deadlines. But they’re constantly being interrupted by worried managers who want to know where things stand. I’ve asked the managers to come through me, but they won’t listen.
