I'm looking for opinions again. I am relatively new to this organization (~3 months). I published the attached agenda for a management review session (done annualy here) ~ 7 days in advance of the meeting. I made sure key players were included in the agenda and on the email routing. Keep in mind, these key individuals have been with the company for a while, and know what is expected of them regarding management review. The Friday before the meeting, I spoke with the CEO (key player) and he informed me he wasn't going to be available. In addition, he didn't think that others would have the time to sit in on the meeting. He admitted to not reviewing the email but felt that I didn't do my job by going to each and every required individual and making sure they read their email.
After starting the meeting, the CEO came in (15 minutes late) and proceeded to take over the meeting. I believe he didn't approve of the agenda, but never told me this specifically. He essentially said fill in the minutes from off-line input.
Can anyone tell me their thoughts regarding the attached agenda. I would also appreciate any other comments from people that have dealt with management teams that seem to have an attitude. I feel as though some team members disagree with my approach, but are not discussing this with me. Instead, they simply nod their heads in agreement, them feign ignorance when the CEO raises questions. Any insight would be helpfull (italicized words for dubious distinction). Thanks.
