I work as a senior software engineer with technical leadership responsibilities at the company I work at.
My job so far required: interpersonal skills at the team level, operational project management, candidate interviewing and presentations on technical topics.
Now, my superior left for a week and left me in charge of the team in his absence. Which of course is a test.
One of my tasks is to scheadule a functional specification review meeting from a client this week.
I've called the client and she told me to leave my contact to her assistant and that she will call me. The client is a head of a department from the local municipality.
What should I do:
1. Call her.
2. Call her assistant.
1. Scheadule the meeting before friday (on friday I'm on a business trip).
2. Scheadule the meeting.
3. Not irritate the client.
4. Execute the meeting flawlessly.
