Time spent with the boss

Working time dedicated to activities and processes to be performed together with the boss, separate from the time spent performing the role directly or managed autonomously. It includes time spent in meetings, direct contacts (via phone, e-mail and other communication media), occasional requests for clarification or help related to role performance; in general, this is time dedicated to routine or non-routine activities, whether part of organizational processes or not. This time varies: a lot when the boss is not happy with the staff member’s performance; very limited when delegation, trust and competency prevail.
