Is my manager forcing me out?
In our 121 last we had a good discussion on creating a personal development plan, with the idea being I’d write down clear goals & action points to get from my current level to the next, and I’d provide weekly evidence of it. I prepped the doc accordingly, but instead of wanting to discuss it, he said I have 4 weeks to “turn things around” - without giving any new info on what I’ve done wrong - esp given I wrote my goals based on this same feedback from last week??

Scenario: You wrote a report with all the analysis and addressed your manager's comments. But your M brings in an undergrad intern to comment / edit your report, and the intern proceeds to essentially rewrite the thing, causing it to miss some key requirements.
I'm reading the situation as the M wanting to include the intern regardless of his/her contributions/qualifications. But this isn't making the report better or addressing the M's needs for the report. It's just creating more work...
