My manager no longer wants to manage my team, I have problems with the new potential manager
Hi Manager Tools,
I'm team lead on several projects. My manager has decided to give up his responsibilities around my team and hand them over to a peer who I do not have a real relationship with and I'm worried does not respect my opinions. He has not been involved in any of the projects I lead.
My preferred outcome would be for me to report to a different team whose manager I'm working jointly with on several projects. Is it worth suggesting the possibility to my manager, or does that count as undermining my new boss.
My current boss did coach it as 'considering' the other guy to be the manager. Though I suspect he did so to pretend that my opinion matters and that the decision has already been made.
