Again, you missed the key part of what I said.
Ironically, so did you, Chris
Honestly, I don't understand why you hear "We don't know yet" and instantly assume it's untrue.
. I just think - and that's the only thing I've said - that a manager who doesn't expect those who work under his supervision to give him any heads-up on what they have planned in the next couple of months is not particularly "hands-on". In fact, in most businesses, that kind of attitude would be considered spectacularly negligent.
