Its getting interesting at work.
We've a new Chief Executive and, as I think I have posted before, he comes with a reputation of being authoritarian.
My experience as someone with Asperger is that this is the type of management style that I find at best challenging. I have encountered situations like this twice previously and things did not go entirely well.
Against that I feel that I am better prepared this time. My first objective is to keep my head down and remain as inconspicuous as I can. I am not front-line management per se and so there is no reason why I should be "in the firing line" of any immediate possible changes.
Secondly, I am going to give the person (CEO) the benefit of the doubt. Another lesson that my past experience has taught me is that rumour can often be inaccurate. It could even be of course that the new regime could be beneficial to me.
Finally, I am making contingencies! I am trying to secure something internally at the moment that should make my position slightly more secure in thr short-term at least. If nothing else, this should buy me time.
