I'd like your advice on when to start MT-style O3s with a skip who will become my direct in 6 weeks, and he'll be a first-time manager supervising his former peers.
I'm a director who started O3s 5 weeks ago with my two directs, call them A and B. As prescribed by MT, I'm rolling out slow, so I told A & B I expect them to eventually start MT-style O3s with their directs but that we would do them for a while ourselves first to get used to them before they had to start with their directs. They already have good relationships and do bi-weekly 1-hr check-ins with their directs, but I want to transition us all to MT-format weekly O3s.
Six weeks from now, one of my skips, call him C, will be promoted to (first-time) manager and so I'll have three directs (A, B, & C) and we will redistribute the staff into three teams from the current two. I'd like C to start MT O3s with his new directs (his former peers) right away, but he hasn't experienced them yet with his current manager, B, since I am rolling out slow.
1. Have A & B start MT O3s with their directs (including C) now, before we switch to 3 teams, so that C experiences it with B, even though we'll soon be redistributing the directs among three managers?
2. Start O3s with C now, while he is still technically my skip for the next 6 weeks till his promotion?
3. Start O3s with C later, when he is promoted and becomes my direct, and have him wait to start O3s with his new directs till he and I have done them for a couple months?
4. Something else?
