So, my boss is moving on, and I was selected to replace him. What do I say to them on my first meetings with them as their new boss?
- Entire team is my currently my boss + 9 people (includes me).
- I am a team-lead with 2 directs (until the switch is finalized).
- All other directs are managed directly by my boss.
I've read the guidance on New Direct First Day Meetings, and How to Handle a Disgruntled Non-Promoted Direct, and I can't find exact guidance what to say.
I want to do something similar to the New Direct First-Day guidance, and it will be awkward, as saying that "Honesty is above all" to people I've been around for the past year may be received badly.
Any suggestions are welcome.
