I am a new manager of a newly formed PMO in a non-IT industry. A long-time employee (8 years) whom I inherited has announced that she is leaving to take a position in another state.
This employee has strong connections within my group and the company. She was the right hand of the VP before being assigned to me. I am already beginning to feel ripples of concern within my team.
- How can I best guide my team through this transition?
- What should I be learning from the departing employee to make me a better manager?
Love the podcast and the forums! (First post but I have been lurking for some time.)
Thanks in advance!
