So I got an offer that I am accepting tomorrow (thank you MT Interview Series)!
So I checked out the How to Resign series and it says how to behave and how to resign/what to say to your boss, but didn't really give any guidance (or maybe it did and I missed it) on how to notify your directs that you're leaving.
Should this be the responsibility of your boss after they accept your resignation, or once you have the conversation with your boss should you sit your staff down and talk to them each individually, either on that day or during regularly scheduled one on ones?
My dos and don'ts
It speaks very well of you that you're concerned for your directs during a time of transition. Good luck at the new job!
Do I have the right to tell my directs that I resigned?
There appears to be a discrepancy between the How To Resign podcasts which very assertively state "TELL NO ONE" because it is your boss's right to share the news and (paraphrasing) control the message, and the Post-resignation Team Meeting podcasts which recommends getting the news of your resignation to your team immediately by either a meeting, or if your boss prevents that, by email. Have I misinterpretted the recomendations here?
