I recently changed companies and took over managing a team that was managed by my current boss. He was promoted and I filled his slot. I have 10 directs, and two of them have directs as well.
He (my predecessor and boss) held a bi-weekly staff meeting which included some of the skip-level teammates, and it was a "round-the-table" review of current status and recent accomplishments. I continued that meeting in that format as I have become acclimated and initiated one-on-ones
My question - how do I get the skips out of the staff meeting without ruffling feathers and/or hurting feelings?
