Seniority doesn’t matter, just work together

We are a flat hierarchy.

likefunny

seniority shouldn’t really matter within rank unless someone has assigned a reporting relationship or someone has discussed expectations that there is an authority relationship in place

It really should be about having a conversation, exchanging ideas, and mutually making decisions that we agree makes sense.... not having a complex around titles and superiority. Authority should speak for itself. When I’ve managed workstreams, I’ve directed my team (including seniors, managers, and directors) towards a work plan/timeline, which we agreed to. I’m an A2.

Sounds like A2 is ready for promotion.

I'm an a3 and delegate to an SA3 not because of ability but because I know the content better at this moment.

Yea, so if you’re in a role of pushing things forward, assigning out things to do.. that makes sense. Sort of like a project manager would do. I do the same for more senior folks for specific initiatives. I guess The conversation really comes down to who is responsible for what. Title doesn’t really matter, but a role discussion has to take place to figure out where the buck stops.

Seniority on Projects, no not really.

A3 should have a conversation with their M about their promotion goals and ask how they can demonstrate readiness on this project. That’s it

“Your team” huh P3? 😉

Lol m1. How else would I describe simply a project team I’m on?

Friend of mine took me out for dinner, and on the car ride back I casually suggested we stop for ice cream. He raised his voice “I have things to do, we can’t just do this.” And immediately apologized. I shut down when men raise their voice and felt disrespected, but I didn’t want to be hostile and argue about it with him in the car, so we rode back in silence. I also don’t know how to (or if I should) bring it up since we aren’t dating. How do you address this (or do you just let it go)?
