Following a takeover of our company last year I took up a new management position. The structure of the company remains generally unaltered, however my immediate boss has changed. It is someone who has always been a superior and someone I respect. I would describe him as a good boss and we have a good relationship.
My boss has 4 key directs, of which I am one. Of the other 3, one direct has had their review, the other 2 have had confirmed dates for their reviews for a number of weeks.
While not chasing my boss on it, I have queried him on details of the process a number of times. On each occasion he has opened his diary to agree a date and time, and on each occasion he has stopped short of committing, asking if he can get back to me with a date. Then subsequently failed to do so.
I now intend to drop the subject with him. I am not anticipating bad news of any kind and I know I have performed well this year (having completed my own review the MT way!).
What might cause my boss to stall like this, and is the best approach to just let it go?
