I had a zoom interview today with 2 practice group leaders that was scheduled for an hour. It lasted all of 12 minutes, despite the conversation flowing. The flow was good, and the abrupt stop was just out of no where. Do they hate me, or was this actually a screener call and it was told incorrectly to me? Lol

Coaching leader on factors influencing KPIs.

I had a chat with my business partner, and he’s said the team is complaining about the KPIs that are too far of a stretch.

I then suggested him to unpack that a bit more. When one is not hitting their KPIs, there could be many factors.

My initial view is that it could be true but we also have to look at CAPABILITY, TECHNOLOGY, WAYS OF WORKING etc before assuming our KPI is not set up right.

What is your approach in this scenario?

Any tips for dealing with a difficult atty in my group? There’s an atty who is sr to me, but who isn’t in my direct chain of command. Our areas overlap so we work together a lot. She keeps trying to throw me under the bus or tattle about me to my manager about minor issues. Things that’d make more sense to talk to me about directly instead. Fortunately, I have a wonderful, supportive manager. Not sure how to handle other than to be incredibly deferential. Help me get this target off my back!
