I report to a new manager as of 6 months ago. Since the transition occured, my motivation has declined dramatically. I'm curious, if there's a lesson to be learned from this siutation. I need to find this because this is the only motivation i have left to work as i find my next move.
Her managers have openly said to the team that their main and only concern is to hit milestones at any expense.
My manager was a peer of mine that was promoted to this new role. Prior to her promotion, we got along great. I seek her advice and I gave her advice on some challenging tasks. We were a team. Since her promotion; our working relationship has drastically changed. I do believe that her promotion was based on the fact that she could along with people more than I do. Because her technical experience did not align with the department's needs.
She now has stripped all my responsibilities away from me. She first stripped away my technical responsibilities. At first, I tried to be on her "good side" by suggesting on how to improved the situation. She disagrees with me on all of it without considering if it could be helpful. Eventually, I stopped contributing and stopped trying. Instead I focused on my managerial skills. But, she took this away from me too. She continuously provided guidance to my techinicians on career growth and their MBOs. Some of these contradicts with my ongoing one-on -one feedbacks. I kindly suggested that we should proactively keep each other in the loop so we can prevent confusion to our personnels. She again adamantly disagrees with me and she feels that informing me is sufficient.
So the big question is; what lessons am I suppose to learn from this? How should I handle this situaiton better?
