Boss Wants to Meet But Won't Say Why

Dear Experts, I'm headed out on vacation next week. My boss told me today he needs to speak to me at the end of the day on Friday before I leave but wouldn't specify why. I've already gotten everything set up for coverage in my absence, so I all I can think about is that I'm getting let go. I'm freaking out, what can I do? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question:Q#225 Meet w boss. Don't worry. Stay calm. (@kgrantcareers) Q#225 What if he's going to give you a gift or something? Don't freak. Should already have resume on standby. (@beneubanks) Q#225 There are many reasons to have quick chat before you leave for the week. Relax and Stay Positive. (@iplawman) Q#225 You have to wait to find out what the issue is. Focus on work. U will know soon enough. (@DebraWheatman) Q#225 First, don't borrow trouble. It could as easily be a promotion. Any way to speak w/him B4 Fri? (@dawnbugni) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
