BLUF: Boss promoted, I'll be promoted into his old role and still reporting into my old boss. I'm looking for guidance on how to not lose his support as I make eventual changes to the processes he developed.
Yesterday, my boss let me know that he is getting a new role and asked if I was interested in his current role. I am very interested, so said 'yes'. We see eye-to-eye on many things, but not everything. I have some changes that I will need to implement to improve our processes, and he will be a champion for me as I do this.
What I want to do is improve the team's performance and retain him as a champion for working with other teams to streamline this process.
What I don't want to do is to alienate him by changing any pet processes or moving to obviously or quickly. Even though I want to move obviously and quickly.
I've reviewed several threads here on MT which have been very helpful.
Me - High C/D
Boss - High I + S tendencies
As you can guess, my C side means I'll be studying the MT Trinity ASAP.
Do you have any guidance to help me with this process? Book/article suggestions would be very welcome.
Thanks in advance!
