Suggestion: New Manager in, Old Manager won't let go
Hi Mark & Mike,
I suspect that this topic is already on your 400+ podcast discussion list. I read a post on another forum that I thought MT would have an answer for. The question:
If you come into an organisation as a new manager, but the post you are filling has been vacated by someone who has moved up/sideways in the same organisation and not to another organisation, what do you do if they just won't let go of the old reins? How do you get them to delegate and hand things over properly? How do you clarify the new roles and responsibilities (ideally without upsetting them in the process)?
