Manager won't listen to me. How should I handle this?
My manager won't listen to me when I tell him things. In the most recent example I told him a few months ago my project wasn't fully funded. I wanted to move some of my team to other projects. He said to move faster.
I got pressure from the people funding the program to show how I was going to reduce cost. I came up with a plan and presented it to my manager. He agreed but when he allocated the resource costs he charged my project for people I don't have on my team. I told him this yesterday morning when I saw the numbers. He said he had adjusted it and sent me the same spreadsheet. I emailed him back with the correction. I brought it up again in a meeting I had called on different topic. He said the numbers were already in for the month and he couldn't fix it. He apologized for causing me budget issues. The big problem is he didn't listen. I told him 3 times before he set the numbers for the month.
Another example. He dinged me on my performance review since the team didn't get the mobile portion done by the end of last year. When we quoted the project it was supposed to start in September with a team of 6. I was given a team of 2 in October and expected to get the same work done. I didn't know until this year when he started yelling after our demos about why the work wasn't complete. When he gets in that mode he won't listen to any reason.
I talked to the other team manager and he said this has been happening as long as he has been with the team. I was promoted to manager at the end of last year. The other team manager says he doesn't listen to him either.
I am frustrated. I can't get anywhere if I can't get him to listen. Any advice?
