I have been listening to the Manager and Career Tools podcasts for over a year now. They are phenomenal. I glean useful and usable information every time I listen, but I am looking for some specific guidance or maybe direction towards a specific podcast.

My company (a bank) just announced that it has been acquired by a larger bank. I am the IT Manager and have 3 direct reports. Obviously, I have a lot of questions and my directs are coming to me with a lot of questions. I am looking for any guidance to help me demonstrate good behaviors to both my staff and to the management during this time.

Thank you

(and I've used them, both sides of the acquisition table).

Good luck.

ETA: "Wrong side"?  Careful there.  Go with "acquired side" - there's opportunity in them thar hills...
