I have a direct report whom I have been having one on ones with for three months now (started right after finding MT). Yesterday he transitioned to a new team with a new manager. I went in and cancelled our weekly meeting in Outlook. He responded with a request to continue having them. :shock:
You never warned me that these could have adverse effects like this.
Granted his new duties are to be a 'vendor' to my current team and it may be useful, but I don't feel comfortable having them with someone who isn't a direct report. Any comments out there?
