Q: How to deal with unnecessarily frequent meetings with my manager?
A: Some ideas:
- If the meetings are for the whole team, suggest that some meetings should only have the relevant attendees and cut down whole-team meetings to once a week
- Suggest a schedule of, say, two meetings per week and agree with your manager that, barring emergencies, all matters will be held until the next scheduled meeting
- If your manager insists on frequent meetings, agree that each meeting will only deal with a specific topic – and try to stick to the appointed topic
