I have several director level DRs but one direct who is not a manager at all. His role is more of a PM. These directors have managers and supervisors that report to them. My question is: Should I include him (the non-manager) in weekly staff meetings?
I have two concerns:
1. There may be discussions about personnel issues that are no business of the non manager. In fact, I can probably guarantee it. I am very transparent with my directors on all personnel issues since there is room for movement among my department's different areas... We find a better fit in some other area, etc.
2. It will look like this person gets "special privilege" with being involved in upper management meetings. This one is less of an issue but I don't want any appearance of favoritism.
What is the collective wisdom surrounding my concerns? I haven't found any casts or forum posts that discuss this. If I've missed it, please direct me!
