Questions/topics to talk about with your boss over lunch?
Hi - i work in corp strategy and I am having a lunch with the head of the department.
He is a very odd character, extremely blunt, cut-throat, doesn’t talk much and usually only replies with very direct responses. There’s often a lot of awkward silences.
im a bit nervous having a lunch with him because I have no idea what to talk about or questions to ask him.
he’s not a sports fan, and also we don’t really have any common interests. My only conversations with him in the past is me just sending him the work he requests etc.
would appreciate any thoughts from people here on how to have a lunch with a character like this and topics/questions I could ask. Thanks
