2021.10.16 23:59 dustybutton What are some good de-escalation strategies to use when co-workers or higher ups are agitated during meetings?
My team has a deadline approaching on November 1st, so naturally it's a hectic time for us, especially management. I'm dreading stand ups with my team because the agitation of my CTO is palpable. These days he has a short fuse when team members ask what I believe to be reasonable clarifying questions. I'm very sensitive to shifts in mood, so to help de-escalate tensions I'd respond to questions I knew the answer to with a calm demeanor. I have to also block out 30 minutes before my stand ups to meditate and relax beforehand (working with people who are short tempered is the reason why I started meditating after college).
I understand I'm still a new engineer approaching my second month and don't have nearly as much responsibilities as my CTO does. I also feel his agitation is a result of his frustration with tasks being blocked because of his work.
One day, one of the freelancers got fed up, and exclaimed he "had enough of [the CTO] snapping at us like this," asserting if he's frustrated, "delegate it to someone who can do it, but stand ups are uncomfortable now, and it's unproductive for everyone. This is the last time I will be spoken to in this way."
While I feel something needed to be said about the delegation and his temper, there was probably another way to approach this. I will certainly bring this up in a retro which is the appropriate time for feedback.
Thanks to meditation and my current self care routine, I can asses risks and act accordingly in a calm, and swift manor. I don't think it's fair for me to assume that someone with more responsibilities than me has the time to do this. So far I've tried proposing solutions to problems that work up my team members, but that's becoming increasingly difficult.
Have you had similar meeting experiences, and if so, how have you de-escalated them?

2021.10.16 23:59 becoming_sage Can someone explain how exactly that big cooking "wok" I see in all the rural cooking videos works?
It looks as if it's incorporated into a brick structure, like a stove ... can the "wok" be removed to be cleaned?
What is it made out of? Do you cook everything in it without cleaning first? What if you burn food?
