My approach to complete initial version

With no support from my manger and feeble information from my teammates, I was struggling a lot to complete the initial version of the document and to share it with the leadership team for review. With only a few hours left for the completion of the initial version, I have made up my stand and started to consolidate information as much as possible with a defined structure. At one point, it seemed the document had more information than what the client has initially requested, and I ensured all the topics that the leadership team mentioned in the call were addressed in the document. Before document to be shared with the leadership team, I had to review with my manager and as usual, he was suggesting some irrelevant changes that would not make any difference to the document and he was also requesting me to add some new information that was irrelevant to the flow. I had no other option but to implement those suggestions and this time I was acting smart by just copy-pasting the information from the previous document without even changing the content and just adding headline to that information.

Most irritating act from delivery person

After politely declining to send a deck with draft outline and slides by EOD, I closed the conversation and was taking care of other activities pending at my end. However, after close of the day, I got a call from my manager and he was requesting whether I can support the service request over the weekend and it has urgent deliverable to be reviewed by the leadership team. I was completely surprised by the request, because before few hours I was clearly detailing out the reasons to the delivery person not to publish any version, as it would draw too many comments and would divert from client requirements. However, he had called my manager and was requesting his attention for my support over weekend. I was completely furious with these silly outcomes and was conveying to my manager that, I have some personal work to attend and would try to address the request whenever I get some time. He was expecting me to support for the entire weekend, which would be next to impossible for me and I don’t want to waste my time by publishing an unwanted version to leadership team.
