Hello! I am looking for some advise.
I was recently promoted from a supervisor to a manager. And although that itself is a step up - I am talking over a team and processes that I know absolutely nothing about. I'm confident I can learn this new world but I also know it will take some time.
Additionally the previous manager....wasn't so great. I am finding more and more things every day that haven't been done in monthd - and I'm having to communicate those up the chain. The thing is the answer for these things not being done is the previous manager. And with him gone I don't want all my answers to be "Well he didn't do it" I want my answers and have made my answers - this hasn't been done and here is what I'm doing to correct it.
So 1) does anyone have any advise for learning a new world? 2) does anyone have any advise on taking on a mess and not making all the conversations a bashing session on the previous manager?
