How to ask boss, "WTH?"
BLUF: What is a polite, professional way of asking my manager, "WTH is going on?" [And yes, I know not to simply ask him "WTH." ]
Longer version... I'm remote from my manager (a VP) and all of my peers. I have good relationships with my peers (who all report to other VP's), and have regular 1o1's with several.
Two peers recently shared news with me. One will be reporting to a different VP - in a different country. This will be a pretty big change in the organization. He hopes there will be an org announcement, but isn't aware of one yet. Another peer told me he was asked to submit a plan to reduce his headcount. This will likely lead to some layoffs.
I haven't received any guidance like what my peers received. And the changes they're experiencing will have an impact on my team and our deliverables.
How do I let my manager know that I'm aware of these things - or should I? And how do I ask if there are any other changes that I need to be aware of?
Thanks. I appreciate everyone's thoughts on this.
