The individual who is likely to be my new manager in the next few months has had the first "where do you want to go?" conversation with me. In casual conversation he offered to help should I want to either leave the team and do something else in the company or find a job as an external consultant (I basically act as an internal consultant now).
I'm no longer enthusiastic about the team I'm in. I'm a long time my current company (approx. 10 years) and doing something else here appealing. Equally appealing would be to go external.
Do I tell the truth or is this like signing my own death warrant? At this point I'm giving the company line - interested in growing in this area and expanding my management responsibilites.
I've always worked to truly help my directs to get where they want to do. However, not sure if I should trust others to do the same.
